Pull networking fixes from David Miller: 1) Found via trinity: If you connect up an ipv6 socket to an ipv4 mapped address then an ipv6 one, sendmsg() can croak because ip6_sk_dst_check() assumes the route cached in the socket is an ipv6 one. In this case there is an ipv4 route attached, so it gets stomped on. Reported by Dave Jones and Hannes Frederic Sowa, fixed by Eric Dumazet. 2) AF_KEY notifications leak some kernel memory to userspace, fix from Mathias Krause. 3) DLCI calls __dev_get_by_name() without proper locking, and dlci_del doesn't validate that the device being deleted is actually a DLCI one. Fixes from Li Zefan. 4) Length check on bluetooth l2cap information responses is wrong, each response type has a different lenth, so we should make sure it's in a given range rather than enforce one single valid length. From Jaganath Kanakkassery. 5) Receive FIFO overflow is really easy to trigger in stress scenerios in the sh_eth driver, but the event isn't being handled properly at all. Specifically, the mask of error interrupts doesn't include the event so we never clear it, resulting in the driver becomming wedged processing an interrupt that never gets cleared. Fix from Sergei Shtylyov. 6) qlcnic sleeps while holding a spinlock, use mdelay() instead of msleep(). From Shahed Shaikh. 7) Missing curly braces causes SIP netfilter NAT module to always drop packets. Fix from Balazs Peter Odor. 8) ipt_ULOG in netfilter passes the wrong value to timer setup, causing the timer to dereference crap when it fires. Fix from Gao Feng. 9) Missing RCU protection around txq->axq_acq traversal in ath_txq_schedule(). Fix from Felix Fietkau. 10) Idle state transition test in ath9k_htc_config() is reversed, fix from Sujith Manoharan. 11) IPV6 forwarding handles unicast Router Alert packets incorrectly. It tests the wrong option state. Previously opt->ra being non-zero indicated a router alert marking in the SKB, but now it's indicated by a bit in opt->flags. Fix from YOSHIFUJI Hideaki. 12) SKB leak in GRE tunnel GSO handling, from Eric Dumazet. 13) get_user_pages_fast() error handling in TUN and MACVTAP use the same local variable for the base index and the loop iterator for page traversal, oops! Fix from Michael S Tsirkin. 14) ipv6_get_lladdr() can fail, and we must therefore check it's return value in inet6_set_iftoken(). For from Hannes Frederic Sowa. 15) If you change an interface name and meanwhile can sneak in something that looks up the name (like SO_BINDTODEVICE or SIOCGIFNAME) we can deadlock with CONFIG_PREEMPT=n. Fix this by providing a helper function that properly uses raw_seqcount_begin(). From Nicolas Schichan. 16) Chain noise calibration test is inverted in iwlwifi, fix from Nikolay Martynov. 17) Properly set TX iwlwifi descriptor flags for back requests. Fix from Emmanuel Grumbach. 18) We can't assume skb_transport_header() is set in xt_TCPOPTSTRAP module, fix from Pablo Neira Ayuso. 19) Some crummy APs don't provide the proper High Throughput info in association response frames. Add a workaround by assume we'll use whatever is in the beacon/probe. Fix from Johannes Berg. 20) mac80211 call to rate_idx_match_mask() swaps two arguments (mask and channel width). Fix from Simon Wunderlich. 21) xt_TCPMSS (like xt_TCPOPTSTRAP) must not try to handle fragmented frames. Fix from Phil Oester. 22) Fix rate control regression causing iwlwifi/iwlegacy chips to use 1Mbit/s on pre-11n networks. From Moshe Benji and Stanslaw Gruszka. 23) Disable brcmsmac power-save functions, they cause regressions. From Arend van Spriel. 24) Enforce a sane minimum MTU in l2cap_build_cmd() otherwise we can easily crash. Fix from Anderson Lizardo. 25) If a learning packet arrives during vxlan_stop() we crash, easily fixed by checking netif_running(). From Stephen Hemminger. 26) Static vxlan FDB entries should not be migrated, also from Stephen. 27) skb_clone() failures not handled in vxlan_xmit(), oops. Also from Stephen. 28) Add minimal driver for AR816x/AR817x ethernet chips, from Johannes Berg. 29) Fix regression in userspace VLAN acceleration control, added by the 802.1ad support changes. Fix from Fernando Luis Vazquez Cao. 30) Interval selection for MLD queries in the bridging code was reversed. Fix from Linus Lüssing. 31) ipv6's ndisc_send_redirect() erroneously writes to the packet we received not the packet we are building to send out. Fix from Matthias Schiffer. 32) Don't free netdev before unregistering it, in usb_8dev can driver. From Marc Kleine-Budde. 33) Fix nl80211 attribute buffer races, from Johannes Berg. 34) Although netlink_diag.h is under uapi/ it isn't present in Kbuild. From Stephen Hemminger. 35) Wrong address and family passed to MD5 key lookups in TCP, from Aydin Arik. 36) phy_type attribute created by SFC driver should not be writable. From Ben Hutchings. 37) Receive/Transmit queue allocations in pxa168_eth and mv643xx_eth should use kzalloc(). Otherwise if setup fails half-way, we'll dereference garbage when trying to teardown the rings. From Lubomir Rintel. 38) Fix double-allocation of dst (resulting in unfreeable net device) in ipv6's init_loopback(). From Gao Feng. 39) Fix fragmentation handling SKB leak in netfilter conntrack, we were freeing the wrong skb pointer. From Phil Oester. 40) Don't report "-1" (SPEED_UNKNOWN) in bond_miimon_commit(), from Nikolay Aleksandrov. 41) davinci_cpdma doesn't check for DMA mapping errors, letting the device scribble to random addresses.

2013-06-01powerpc/tm: Fix userspace stack corruption on signal delivery for active ↵Michael Neuling
transactions When in an active transaction that takes a signal, we need to be careful with the stack. It's possible that the stack has moved back up after the tbegin. The obvious case here is when the tbegin is called inside a function that returns before a tend. In this case, the stack is part of the checkpointed transactional memory state. If we write over this non transactionally or in suspend, we are in trouble because if we get a tm abort, the program counter and stack pointer will be back at the tbegin but our in memory stack won't be valid anymore. To avoid this, when taking a signal in an active transaction, we need to use the stack pointer from the checkpointed state, rather than the speculated state. This ensures that the signal context (written tm suspended) will be written below the stack required for the rollback. The transaction is aborted becuase of the treclaim, so any memory written between the tbegin and the signal will be rolled back anyway. For signals taken in non-TM or suspended mode, we use the normal/non-checkpointed stack pointer. Tested with 64 and 32 bit signals Signed-off-by: Michael Neuling <> Cc: <> # v3.9 Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <>
2013-06-01powerpc/tm: Abort on emulation and alignment faultsMichael Neuling
If we are emulating an instruction inside an active user transaction that touches memory, the kernel can't emulate it as it operates in transactional suspend context. We need to abort these transactions and send them back to userspace for the hardware to rollback. We can service these if the user transaction is in suspend mode, since the kernel will operate in the same suspend context. This adds a check to all alignment faults and to specific instruction emulations (only string instructions for now). If the user process is in an active (non-suspended) transaction, we abort the transaction go back to userspace allowing the HW to roll back the transaction and tell the user of the failure. This also adds new tm abort cause codes to report the reason of the persistent error to the user.

2013-05-24drivers/video: implement a simple framebuffer driverStephen Warren
A simple frame-buffer describes a raw memory region that may be rendered to, with the assumption that the display hardware has already been set up to scan out from that buffer. This is useful in cases where a bootloader exists and has set up the display hardware, but a Linux driver doesn't yet exist for the display hardware. Examples use-cases include: * The built-in LCD panels on the Samsung ARM chromebook, and Tegra devices, and likely many other ARM or embedded systems. These cannot yet be supported using a full graphics driver, since the panel control should be provided by the CDF (Common Display Framework), which has been stuck in design/review for quite some time. One could support these panels using custom SoC-specific code, but there is a desire to use common infra-structure rather than having each SoC vendor invent their own code, hence the desire to wait for CDF. * Hardware for which a full graphics driver is not yet available, and the path to obtain one upstream isn't yet clear. For example, the Raspberry Pi. * Any hardware in early stages of upstreaming, before a full graphics driver has been tackled. This driver can provide a graphical boot console (even full X support) much earlier in the upstreaming process, thus making new SoC or board support more generally useful earlier.

Pull MIPS updates from Ralf Baechle: - More work on DT support for various platforms - Various fixes that were to late to make it straight into 3.9 - Improved platform support, in particular the Netlogic XLR and BCM63xx, and the SEAD3 and Malta eval boards. - Support for several Ralink SOC families. - Complete support for the microMIPS ASE which basically reencodes the existing MIPS32/MIPS64 ISA to use non-constant size instructions. - Some fallout from LTO work which remove old cruft and will generally make the MIPS kernel easier to maintain and resistant to compiler optimization, even in absence of LTO. - KVM support. While MIPS has announced hardware virtualization extensions this KVM extension uses trap and emulate mode for virtualization of MIPS32. More KVM work to add support for VZ hardware virtualizaiton extensions and MIPS64 will probably already be merged for 3.11. Most of this has been sitting in -next for a long time. All defconfigs have been build or run time tested except three for which fixes are being sent by other maintainers.

git:// Pull ARM SoC fixes and straggler patches from Olof Johansson: "A collection of fixes for fall out from 3.10 merge window, some build fixes and warning cleanups and a small handful of patches that were small and contained and made sense to still include in 3.10 (some of these have also been in -next since the merge window opened). Largest continous series is for OMAP, but there's a handful for other platforms.

git:// Pull btrfs update from Chris Mason: "These are mostly fixes. The biggest exceptions are Josef's skinny extents and Jan Schmidt's code to rebuild our quota indexes if they get out of sync (or you enable quotas on an existing filesystem). The skinny extents are off by default because they are a new variation on the extent allocation tree format. btrfstune -x enables them, and the new format makes the extent allocation tree about 30% smaller. I rebased this a few days ago to rework Dave Sterba's crc checks on the super block, but almost all of these go back to rc6, since I though 3.9 was due any minute. The biggest missing fix is the tracepoint bug that was hit late in 3.9. I ran into problems with that in overnight testing and I'm still tracking it down. I'll definitely have that fixed for rc2." * 'for-linus' of git:// (101 commits) Btrfs: allow superblock mismatch from older mkfs btrfs: enhance superblock checks btrfs: fix misleading variable name for flags btrfs: use unsigned long type for extent state bits Btrfs: improve the loop of scrub_stripe btrfs: read entire device info under lock btrfs: remove unused gfp mask parameter from release_extent_buffer callchain btrfs: handle errors returned from get_tree_block_key btrfs: make static code static & remove dead code Btrfs: deal with errors in write_dev_supers Btrfs: remove almost all of the BUG()'s from tree-log.c Btrfs: deal with free space cache errors while replaying log Btrfs: automatic rescan after "quota enable" command Btrfs: rescan for qgroups Btrfs: split btrfs_qgroup_account_ref into four functions Btrfs: allocate new chunks if the space is not enough for global rsv Btrfs: separate sequence numbers for delayed ref tracking and tree mod log btrfs: move leak debug code to functions Btrfs: return free space in cow error path Btrfs: set UUID in root_item for created trees ...
