when setting up the tx descriptors for the hardware we must account for any

len is the length of the frame in the air (including FCS but no padding) and
buffer len is the length of the buffer (including padding, but without FCS).

changing the way ah_setup_tx_desc is called: now excluding the FCS, since it's
easier to add that in the function where we need it.

before this fix we sent trailing zero bytes after the packet (because frame len
included the padding) which was not a big problem without WEP, but with WEP
this resultes in a wrong WEP checksum and the packet is discarded - which is
how i noticed at all ;)

an easy way to run into header padding problems, btw, is to connect to a QoS
(WME) enabled access point (eg. madwifi) - QoS data frames are 2 byte longer

Frank Blaschka provided the bug report and the initial suggested fix
for this bug.  He also validated this version of this fix.

The problem is that the access to neigh->arp_queue is inconsistent, we
grab references when dropping the lock lock to call
neigh->ops->solicit() but this does not prevent other threads of
control from trying to send out that packet at the same time causing
corruptions because both code paths believe they have exclusive access
to the skb.

The best option seems to be to hold the write lock on neigh->lock
during the ->solicit() call.  I looked at all of the ndisc_ops
implementations and this seems workable.  The only case that needs
special care is the IPV4 ARP implementation of arp_solicit().  It
wants to take neigh->lock as a reader to protect the header entry in
neigh->ha during the emission of the soliciation.  We can simply
remove the read lock calls to take care of that since holding the lock
as a writer at the caller providers a superset of the protection
afforded by the existing read locking.

The rest of the ->solicit() implementations don't care whether the
neigh is locked or not.

hci_ldisc: fix null pointer deref

Arjan:

  With the help of kerneloops.org I've spotted a nice little interaction
  between the TTY layer and the bluetooth code, however the tty layer is not
  something I'm all too familiar with so I rather ask than brute-force fix the
  code incorrectly.

  The raw details are at:
  http://www.kerneloops.org/search.php?search=uart_flush_buffer

  What happens is that, on closing the bluetooth tty, the tty layer goes
  into the release_dev() function, which first does a bunch of stuff, then
  sets the file->private_data to NULL, does some more stuff and then calls the
  ldisc close function.  Which in this case, is hci_uart_tty_close().

  Now, hci_uart_tty_close() calls hci_uart_close() which clears some
  internal bit, and then calls hci_uart_flush()...  which calls back to the
  tty layers' uart_flush_buffer() function.  (in drivers/bluetooth/hci_tty.c
  around line 194) Which then WARN_ON()'s because that's not allowed/supposed
  to be called this late in the shutdown of the port....

  Should the bluetooth driver even call this flush function at all??

David:

  This seems to be what happens: Hci_uart_close() flushes using
  hci_uart_flush().  Subsequently, in hci_dev_do_close(), (one step in
  hci_unregister_dev()), hci_uart_flush() is called again.  The comment in
  uart_flush_buffer(), relating to the WARN_ON(), indicates you can't flush
  after the port is closed; which sounds reasonable.  I think hci_uart_close()
  should set hdev->flush to NULL before returning.  Hci_dev_do_close() does
  check for this.  The code path is rather involved and I'm not entirely clear
  of all steps, but I think that's what should be done.

it seems this is not necessary (e.g.  ax25_send_to_raw() does similar
reading without this lock too).

So, this patch removes sock lock to avoid deadlock possibility; there
is also used sock_i_ino() function, which reads sk_socket under proper
read lock. Additionally printf format of this i_ino is changed to %lu.

[IPV4]: Remove IP_TOS setting privilege checks.

Various RFCs have all sorts of things to say about the CS field of the
DSCP value.  In particular they try to make the distinction between
values that should be used by "user applications" and things like
routing daemons.

This seems to have influenced the CAP_NET_ADMIN check which exists for
IP_TOS socket option settings, but in fact it has an off-by-one error
so it wasn't allowing CS5 which is meant for "user applications" as
well.

Further adding to the inconsistency and brokenness here, IPV6 does not
validate the DSCP values specified for the IPV6_TCLASS socket option.

The real actual uses of these TOS values are system specific in the
final analysis, and these RFC recommendations are just that, "a
recommendation".  In fact the standards very purposefully use
"SHOULD" and "SHOULD NOT" when describing how these values can be
used.

In the final analysis the only clean way to provide consistency here
is to remove the CAP_NET_ADMIN check.  The alternatives just don't
work out:

1) If we add the CAP_NET_ADMIN check to ipv6, this can break existing
   setups.

2) If we just fix the off-by-one error in the class comparison in
   IPV4, certain DSCP values can be used in IPV6 but not IPV4 by
   default.  So people will just ask for a sysctl asking to
   override that.

I checked several other freely available kernel trees and they
do not make any privilege checks in this area like we do.  For
the BSD stacks, this goes back all the way to Stevens Volume 2
and beyond.

13 years agomempolicy: silently restrict nodemask to allowed nodes
KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 12 Feb 2008 04:30:22 +0000 (13:30 +0900)]
mempolicy: silently restrict nodemask to allowed nodes

Kosaki Motohito noted that "numactl --interleave=all ..." failed in the
presence of memoryless nodes.  This patch attempts to fix that problem.

Some background:

numactl --interleave=all calls set_mempolicy(2) with a fully populated
[out to MAXNUMNODES] nodemask.  set_mempolicy() [in do_set_mempolicy()]
calls contextualize_policy() which requires that the nodemask be a
subset of the current task's mems_allowed; else EINVAL will be returned.

A task's mems_allowed will always be a subset of node_states[N_HIGH_MEMORY]
i.e., nodes with memory.  So, a fully populated nodemask will be
declared invalid if it includes memoryless nodes.

  NOTE:  the same thing will occur when running in a cpuset
         with restricted mem_allowed--for the same reason:
         node mask contains dis-allowed nodes.

mbind(2), on the other hand, just masks off any nodes in the nodemask
that are not included in the caller's mems_allowed.

In each case [mbind() and set_mempolicy()], mpol_check_policy() will
complain [again, resulting in EINVAL] if the nodemask contains any
memoryless nodes.  This is somewhat redundant as mpol_new() will remove
memoryless nodes for interleave policy, as will bind_zonelist()--called
by mpol_new() for BIND policy.

Proposed fix:

1) modify contextualize_policy logic to:
   a) remember whether the incoming node mask is empty.
   b) if not, restrict the nodemask to allowed nodes, as is
      currently done in-line for mbind().  This guarantees
      that the resulting mask includes only nodes with memory.

      NOTE:  this is a [benign, IMO] change in behavior for
             set_mempolicy().  Dis-allowed nodes will be
             silently ignored, rather than returning an error.

   c) fold this code into mpol_check_policy(), replace 2 calls to
      contextualize_policy() to call mpol_check_policy() directly
      and remove contextualize_policy().

2) In existing mpol_check_policy() logic, after "contextualization":
   a) MPOL_DEFAULT:  require that in coming mask "was_empty"
   b) MPOL_{BIND|INTERLEAVE}:  require that contextualized nodemask
      contains at least one node.
   c) add a case for MPOL_PREFERRED:  if in coming was not empty
      and resulting mask IS empty, user specified invalid nodes.
      Return EINVAL.
   c) remove the now redundant check for memoryless nodes

3) remove the now redundant masking of policy nodes for interleave
   policy from mpol_new().

4) Now that mpol_check_policy() contextualizes the nodemask, remove
   the in-line nodes_and() from sys_mbind().  I believe that this
   restores mbind() to the behavior before the memoryless-nodes
   patch series.  E.g., we'll no longer treat an invalid nodemask
   with MPOL_PREFERRED as local allocation.

[ Patch history:

  v1 -> v2:
   - Communicate whether or not incoming node mask was empty to
     mpol_check_policy() for better error checking.
   - As suggested by David Rientjes, remove the now unused
     cpuset_nodes_subset_current_mems_allowed() from cpuset.h

  v2 -> v3:
   - As suggested by Kosaki Motohito, fold the "contextualization"
     of policy nodemask into mpol_check_policy().  Looks a little
     cleaner. ]

Be more robust about bad arguments in get_user_pages()

So I spent a while pounding my head against my monitor trying to figure
out the vmsplice() vulnerability - how could a failure to check for
*read* access turn into a root exploit? It turns out that it's a buffer
overflow problem which is made easy by the way get_user_pages() is
coded.

In particular, "len" is a signed int, and it is only checked at the
*end* of a do {} while() loop.  So, if it is passed in as zero, the loop
will execute once and decrement len to -1.  At that point, the loop will
proceed until the next invalid address is found; in the process, it will
likely overflow the pages array passed in to get_user_pages().

I think that, if get_user_pages() has been asked to grab zero pages,
that's what it should do.  Thus this patch; it is, among other things,
enough to block the (already fixed) root exploit and any others which
might be lurking in similar code.  I also think that the number of pages
should be unsigned, but changing the prototype of this function probably
requires some more careful review.

Tsi108_eth: remove not needed code

Code clean-up for tsi108_eth network driver.
This patch removes not needed dummy read and the corresponding comment.
The PHY logic requires two reads from the status register to get
current link status. This is done correctly inside mii_check_media().

sata_mv: platform driver allocs dma without create

When the sata_mv driver is used as a platform driver,
mv_create_dma_pools() is never called so it fails when trying
to alloc in mv_pool_start().
