      ipv6: make lookups simpler and faster · efe4208f
      Eric Dumazet authored
      TCP listener refactoring, part 4 :
      
      To speed up inet lookups, we moved IPv4 addresses from inet to struct
      sock_common
      
      Now is time to do the same for IPv6, because it permits us to have fast
      lookups for all kind of sockets, including upcoming SYN_RECV.
      
      Getting IPv6 addresses in TCP lookups currently requires two extra cache
      lines, plus a dereference (and memory stall).
      
      inet6_sk(sk) does the dereference of inet_sk(__sk)->pinet6
      
      This patch is way bigger than its IPv4 counter part, because for IPv4,
      we could add aliases (inet_daddr, inet_rcv_saddr), while on IPv6,
      it's not doable easily.
      
      inet6_sk(sk)->daddr becomes sk->sk_v6_daddr
      inet6_sk(sk)->rcv_saddr becomes sk->sk_v6_rcv_saddr
      
      And timewait socket also have tw->tw_v6_daddr & tw->tw_v6_rcv_saddr
      at the same offset.
      
      We get rid of INET6_TW_MATCH() as INET6_MATCH() is now the generic
      macro.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
        file.
      
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
         files.
      
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
         necessary.
      
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
      
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      security: report the module name to security_module_request · dd8dbf2e
      Eric Paris authored
      For SELinux to do better filtering in userspace we send the name of the
      module along with the AVC denial when a program is denied module_request.

      inet: rename some inet_sock fields · c720c7e8
      Eric Dumazet authored
      In order to have better cache layouts of struct sock (separate zones
      for rx/tx paths), we need this preliminary patch.
      
      Goal is to transfert fields used at lookup time in the first
      read-mostly cache line (inside struct sock_common) and move sk_refcnt
      to a separate cache line (only written by rx path)
      
      This patch adds inet_ prefix to daddr, rcv_saddr, dport, num, saddr,
      sport and id fields. This allows a future patch to define these
      fields as macros, like sk_refcnt, without name clashes.

      lsm: Use a compressed IPv6 string format in audit events · d8116591
      Paul Moore authored
      Currently the audit subsystem prints uncompressed IPv6 addresses which not
      only differs from common usage but also results in ridiculously large audit
      strings which is not a good thing.  This patch fixes this by simply converting
      audit to always print compressed IPv6 addresses.
      
      Old message example:
      
       audit(1253576792.161:30): avc:  denied  { ingress } for
        saddr=0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001 src=5000
        daddr=0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001 dest=35502 netif=lo
        scontext=system_u:object_r:unlabeled_t:s15:c0.c1023
        tcontext=system_u:object_r:lo_netif_t:s0-s15:c0.c1023 tclass=netif
      
      New message example:
      
       audit(1253576792.161:30): avc:  denied  { ingress } for
        saddr=::1 src=5000 daddr=::1 dest=35502 netif=lo

      SELinux: Convert avc_audit to use lsm_audit.h · 2bf49690
      Thomas Liu authored
      Convert avc_audit in security/selinux/avc.c to use lsm_audit.h,
      for better maintainability.
      
       - changed selinux to use common_audit_data instead of
          avc_audit_data
       - eliminated code in avc.c and used code from lsm_audit.h instead.
      
      Had to add a LSM_AUDIT_NO_AUDIT to lsm_audit.h so that avc_audit
      can call common_lsm_audit and do the pre and post callbacks without
      doing the actual dump.  This makes it so that the patched version
      behaves the same way as the unpatched version.
      
      Also added a denied field to the selinux_audit_data private space,
      once again to make it so that the patched version behaves like the
      unpatched.
      
      I've tested and confirmed that AVCs look the same before and after
      this patch.
