2016-02-24mac80211: add API to allow filtering frames in BA sessionsSara Sharon-0/+3
If any frames are dropped that are part of a BA session, the reorder buffer will "indefinitely" (until the timeout) wait for them to come in (or a BAR moving the window) and won't release frames after them. This means it isn't possible to filter frames within a BA session in firmware. Introduce an API function that allows such filtering. Calling this function will move the BA window forward to the new SSN, and allows marking frames after the SSN as having been filtered, so any future reordering activity will release frames while skipping the holes.

add ieee80211_iter_keys_rcu() to iterate over uploaded keys in atomic context (when rcu is locked) The station removal code removes the keys only after calling synchronize_net(), so it's not safe to iterate the keys at this point (and postponing the actual key deletion with call_rcu() might result in some badly-ordered ops calls).

Group station statistics by where they're (mostly) updated (TX, RX and TX-status) and group them into sub-structs of the struct sta_info.

2015-07-17mac80211: mesh: separate plid and aid conceptsBob Copeland-0/+2
According to 802.11-2012 13.3.1, a mesh STA should assign an AID upon receipt of a mesh peering open frame rather than using the link id of the peer. Using the peer link id has two potential issues: it may not be unique among the peers, and by its nature it is random, so the TIM may not compress well. In preparation for allocating it properly, use sta->sta.aid, but keep the existing behavior of using the plid in the aid we send.

2015-07-17mac80211: upgrade BW of TDLS peers when possibleArik Nemtsov-0/+4
Define a station chandef, to be used for wider-bw TDLS peers. When both peers support the feature, upgrade the channel bandwidth to the maximum allowed by both peers and regulatory. Currently widths up to 80MHz are supported in the 5GHz band. When a TDLS peer connects/disconnects recalculate the channel type of the current chanctx. Make the chanctx width calculation consider wider-bw TDLS peers and similarly fix the max_required_bw calculation for the chanctx min_def. Since the sta->bandwidth is calculated only later on, take bss_conf.chandef.width as the minimal width for station interface.

Allow a device to specify support for the TDLS wider-bandwidth feature. Indicate this support during TDLS setup in the ext-capab IE and set an appropriate station flag when our TDLS peer supports it. This feature gives TDLS peers the ability to use a wider channel than the base width of the BSS. For instance VHT capable TDLS peers connected on a 20MHz channel can extend the channel to 80MHz, if regulatory considerations allow it.

2015-04-20mac80211: lock rate controlJohannes Berg-0/+1
Both minstrel (reported by Sven Eckelmann) and the iwlwifi rate control aren't properly taking concurrency into account. It's likely that the same is true for other rate control algorithms. In the case of minstrel this manifests itself in crashes when an update and other data access are run concurrently, for example when the stations change bandwidth or similar. In iwlwifi, this can cause firmware crashes. Since fixing all rate control algorithms will be very difficult, just provide locking for invocations. This protects the internal data structures the algorithms maintain. I've manipulated hostapd to test this, by having it change its advertised bandwidth roughly ever 150ms. At the same time, I'm running a flood ping between the client and the AP, which causes this race of update vs. get_rate/status to easily happen on the client. With this change, the system survives this test. Reported-by: Sven Eckelmann <sven@open-mesh.com> Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

2015-04-01mac80211: add an intermediate software queue implementationFelix Fietkau-0/+2
This allows drivers to request per-vif and per-sta-tid queues from which they can pull frames. This makes it easier to keep the hardware queues short, and to improve fairness between clients and vifs. The task of scheduling packet transmission is left up to the driver - queueing is controlled by mac80211. Drivers can only dequeue packets by calling ieee80211_tx_dequeue. This makes it possible to add active queue management later without changing drivers using this code. This can also be used as a starting point to implement A-MSDU aggregation in a way that does not add artificially induced latency.

2015-04-01mac80211: fix RX A-MPDU session reorder timer deletionJohannes Berg-0/+2
There's an issue with the way the RX A-MPDU reorder timer is deleted that can cause a kernel crash like this: * tid_rx is removed - call_rcu(ieee80211_free_tid_rx) * station is destroyed * reorder timer fires before ieee80211_free_tid_rx() runs, accessing the station, thus potentially crashing due to the use-after-free The station deletion is protected by synchronize_net(), but that isn't enough -- ieee80211_free_tid_rx() need not have run when that returns (it deletes the timer.) We could use rcu_barrier() instead of synchronize_net(), but that's much more expensive. Instead, to fix this, add a field tracking that the session is being deleted. In this case, the only re-arming of the timer happens with the reorder spinlock held, so make that code not rearm it if the session is being deleted and also delete the timer after setting that field. This ensures the timer cannot fire after ___ieee80211_stop_rx_ba_session() returns, which fixes the problem. Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
2015-04-01mac80211: use rhashtable for station tableJohannes Berg-26/+12
We currently have a hand-rolled table with 256 entries and are using the last byte of the MAC address as the hash. This hash is obviously very fast, but collisions are easily created and we waste a lot of space in the common case of just connecting as a client to an AP where we just have a single station. The other common case of an AP is also suboptimal due to the size of the hash table and the ease of causing collisions. Convert all of this to use rhashtable with jhash, which gives us the advantage of a far better hash function (with random perturbation to avoid hash collision attacks) and of course that the hash table grows and shrinks dynamically with chain length, improving both cases above. Use a specialised hash function (using jhash, but with fixed length) to achieve better compiler optimisation as suggested by Sergey Ryazanov. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

Revert commit ad38bfc916da ("mac80211: Tx frame latency statistics") (along with some follow-up fixes). This code turned out not to be as useful in the current form as we thought, and we've internally hacked it up more, but that's not very suitable for upstream (for now), and we might just do that with tracing instead.

When starting an offloaded BA session it is unknown what starting sequence number should be used. Using last_seq worked in most cases except after hw restart. When hw restart is requested last_seq is (rightfully so) kept unmodified.

2014-06-23mac80211: fix station/driver powersave raceJohannes Berg-2/+5
It is currently possible to have a race due to the station PS unblock work like this: * station goes to sleep with frames buffered in the driver * driver blocks wakeup * station wakes up again * driver flushes/returns frames, and unblocks, which schedules the unblock work * unblock work starts to run, and checks that the station is awake (i.e. that the WLAN_STA_PS_STA flag isn't set) * we process a received frame with PM=1, setting the flag again * ieee80211_sta_ps_deliver_wakeup() runs, delivering all frames to the driver, and then clearing the WLAN_STA_PS_DRIVER and WLAN_STA_PS_STA flags In this scenario, mac80211 will think that the station is awake, while it really is asleep, and any TX'ed frames should be filtered by the device (it will know that the station is sleeping) but then passed to mac80211 again, which will not buffer it either as it thinks the station is awake, and eventually the packets will be dropped. Fix this by moving the clearing of the flags to exactly where we learn about the situation. This creates a problem of reordering, so introduce another flag indicating that delivery is being done, this new flag also queues frames and is cleared only while the spinlock is held (which the queuing code also holds) so that any concurrent delivery/TX is handled correctly.

2014-02-20mac80211: fix AP powersave TX vs. wakeup raceEmmanuel Grumbach-4/+3
There is a race between the TX path and the STA wakeup: while a station is sleeping, mac80211 buffers frames until it wakes up, then the frames are transmitted. However, the RX and TX path are concurrent, so the packet indicating wakeup can be processed while a packet is being transmitted. This can lead to a situation where the buffered frames list is emptied on the one side, while a frame is being added on the other side, as the station is still seen as sleeping in the TX path. As a result, the newly added frame will not be send anytime soon. It might be sent much later (and out of order) when the station goes to sleep and wakes up the next time. Additionally, it can lead to the crash below. Fix all this by synchronising both paths with a new lock. Both path are not fastpath since they handle PS situations. In a later patch we'll remove the extra skb queue locks to reduce locking overhead.

2013-12-16mac80211: optimise mixed AP/VLAN station removalJohannes Berg-1/+7
Teach sta_info_flush() to optionally also remove stations from all VLANs associated with an AP interface to optimise the station removal (in particular, synchronize_net().) To not have to add the vlans argument throughout, do some refactoring. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
