      net: rework recvmsg handler msg_name and msg_namelen logic · 2f73d7fd
      Hannes Frederic Sowa authored
      [ Upstream commit f3d3342602f8bcbf37d7c46641cb9bca7618eb1c ]
      
      This patch now always passes msg->msg_namelen as 0. recvmsg handlers must
      set msg_namelen to the proper size <= sizeof(struct sockaddr_storage)
      to return msg_name to the user.
      
      This prevents numerous uninitialized memory leaks we had in the
      recvmsg handlers and makes it harder for new code to accidentally leak
      uninitialized memory.
      
      Optimize for the case recvfrom is called with NULL as address. We don't
      need to copy the address at all, so set it to NULL before invoking the
      recvmsg handler. We can do so, because all the recvmsg handlers must
      cope with the case a plain read() is called on them. read() also sets
      msg_name to NULL.
      
      Also document these changes in include/linux/net.h as suggested by David
      Miller.
      
      Changes since RFC:
      
      Set msg->msg_name = NULL if user specified a NULL in msg_name but had a
      non-null msg_namelen in verify_iovec/verify_compat_iovec. This doesn't
      affect sendto as it would bail out earlier while trying to copy-in the
      address. It also more naturally reflects the logic by the callers of
      verify_iovec.
      
      With this change in place I could remove "
      if (!uaddr || msg_sys->msg_namelen == 0)
      	msg->msg_name = NULL
      ".
      
      This change does not alter the user visible error logic as we ignore
      msg_namelen as long as msg_name is NULL.
      
      Also remove two unnecessary curly brackets in ___sys_recvmsg and change
      comments to netdev style.

      net: add ETH_P_802_3_MIN · e5c5d22e
      Simon Horman authored
      Add a new constant ETH_P_802_3_MIN, the minimum ethernet type for
      an 802.3 frame. Frames with a lower value in the ethernet type field
      are Ethernet II.
      
      Also update all the users of this value that David Miller and
      I could find to use the new constant.
      
      Also correct a bug in util.c. The comparison with ETH_P_802_3_MIN
      should be >= not >.
      
      As suggested by Jesse Gross.
      
      Compile tested only.

      isdn: hisax: netjet requires VIRT_TO_BUS · 8008f6e1
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      Disabling CONFIG_VIRT_TO_BUS on ARM showed that the hisax netjet
      driver depends on this deprecated functionality but is not
      marked so in Kconfig.
      
      Rather than adding ARM to the already long list of architectures
      that this driver is broken on, this patch adds 'depends on
      VIRT_TO_BUS' and removes the dependency on !SPARC, which is
      also implied by that.

      hlist: drop the node parameter from iterators · b67bfe0d
      Sasha Levin authored
      I'm not sure why, but the hlist for each entry iterators were conceived
      
              list_for_each_entry(pos, head, member)
      
      The hlist ones were greedy and wanted an extra parameter:
      
              hlist_for_each_entry(tpos, pos, head, member)
      
      Why did they need an extra pos parameter? I'm not quite sure. Not only
      they don't really need it, it also prevents the iterator from looking
      exactly like the list iterator, which is unfortunate.
      
      Besides the semantic patch, there was some manual work required:
      
       - Fix up the actual hlist iterators in linux/list.h
       - Fix up the declaration of other iterators based on the hlist ones.
       - A very small amount of places were using the 'node' parameter, this
       was modified to use 'obj->member' instead.
       - Coccinelle didn't handle the hlist_for_each_entry_safe iterator
       properly, so those had to be fixed up manually.
      
      The semantic patch which is mostly the work of Peter Senna Tschudin is here:

      wanrouter: completely decouple obsolete code from kernel. · a786a7c0
      Paul Gortmaker authored
      The original suggestion to delete wanrouter started earlier
      with the mainline commit f0d1b3c2
      ("net/wanrouter: Deprecate and schedule for removal") in May 2012.
      
      More importantly, Dan Carpenter found[1] that the driver had a
      fundamental breakage introduced back in 2008, with commit
      7be6065b ("netdevice wanrouter: Convert directly reference of
      netdev->priv").  So we know with certainty that the code hasn't been
      used by anyone willing to at least take the effort to send an e-mail
      report of breakage for at least 4 years.
      
      This commit does a decouple of the wanrouter subsystem, by going
      after the Makefile/Kconfig and similar files, so that these mainline
      files that we are keeping do not have the big wanrouter file/driver
      deletion commit tied into their history.
      
      Once this commit is in place, we then can remove the obsolete cyclomx
      drivers and similar that have a dependency on CONFIG_WAN_ROUTER_DRIVERS.

      tty: Added a CONFIG_TTY option to allow removal of TTY · 4f73bc4d
      Joe Millenbach authored
      The option allows you to remove TTY and compile without errors. This
      saves space on systems that won't support TTY interfaces anyway.
      bloat-o-meter output is below.
      
      The bulk of this patch consists of Kconfig changes adding "depends on
      TTY" to various serial devices and similar drivers that require the TTY
      layer.  Ideally, these dependencies would occur on a common intermediate
      symbol such as SERIO, but most drivers "select SERIO" rather than
      "depends on SERIO", and "select" does not respect dependencies.
      
      bloat-o-meter output comparing our previous minimal to new minimal by
      removing TTY.  The list is filtered to not show removed entries with awk
      '$3 != "-"' as the list was very long.

      TTY: switch tty_flip_buffer_push · 2e124b4a
      Jiri Slaby authored
      Now, we start converting tty buffer functions to actually use
      tty_port. This will allow us to get rid of the need of tty in many
      call sites. Only tty_port will needed and hence no more
      tty_port_tty_get in those paths.
      
      Now, the one where most of tty_port_tty_get gets removed:
      tty_flip_buffer_push.
      
      IOW we also closed all the races in drivers not using tty_port_tty_get
      at all yet.
      
      Also we move tty_flip_buffer_push declaration from include/linux/tty.h
      to include/linux/tty_flip.h to all others while we are changing it
      anyway.

      TTY: move low_latency to tty_port · d6c53c0e
      Jiri Slaby authored
      One point is to have less places where we actually need tty pointer.
      The other is that low_latency is bound to buffer processing and
      buffers are now in tty_port. So it makes sense to move low_latency to
      tty_port too.
