[PATCH net-next v4 1/2] New kernel function to get IP overhead on a socket.

22 Mar 2017 16:20:07 -0800

A new function, kernel_sock_ip_overhead(), is provided to calculate the cumulative overhead imposed by the IP Header and IP options, if any, on a sock



race condition in kernel/padata.c

22 Mar 2017 16:20:07 -0800

Hey Steffen, WireGuard makes really heavy use of padata, feeding it units of work from different cores in different contexts all at the same time. Fo



[PATCH net-next v4 2/2] L2TP:Adjust intf MTU, add underlay L3, L2 hdrs.

22 Mar 2017 16:20:07 -0800

Existing L2TP kernel code does not derive the optimal MTU for Ethernet pseudowires and instead leaves this to a userspace L2TP daemon or operator. If



[PATCH net-next v4 0/2] L2TP:Adjust intf MTU, add underlay L3, L2 hdrs.

22 Mar 2017 16:20:07 -0800

Existing L2TP kernel code does not derive the optimal MTU for Ethernet pseudowires and instead leaves this to a userspace L2TP daemon or operator. If



[PATCH 1/7] selftests/x86/ldt_gdt_32: Work around a glibc sigaction bug

22 Mar 2017 16:20:05 -0800

i386 glibc is buggy and calls the sigaction syscall incorrectly. This is asymptomatic for normal programs, but it blows up on programs that do evil th



[PATCH 3/7] x86/efi/32: Fix EFI on systems where the percpu GDT is virtually mapped

22 Mar 2017 16:20:05 -0800

__pa on a percpu pointer is invalid. This bug appears to go *waaay* back, and I guess it's just never been triggered. Cc: Matt Fleming



[PATCH 7/7] x86/boot/32: Rewrite test_wp_bit()

22 Mar 2017 16:20:05 -0800

This code seems to be very old and has gotten only minor updates. Nowadays we have a shiny function probe_kernel_write() that does more or less exactl



[PATCH 6/7] x86/xen/gdt: Use X86_FEATURE_XENPV instead of globals for the GDT fixup

22 Mar 2017 16:20:05 -0800

Xen imposes special requirements on the GDT. Rather than using a global variable for the pgprot, just use an explicit special case for Xen -- this ma



[PATCH 5/7] x86/gdt: Get rid of the get_*_gdt_*_vaddr() helpers

22 Mar 2017 16:20:05 -0800

There's a single caller that is only there because it's passing a pointer into a function (vmcs_writel()) that takes an unsigned long. Let's just cast



[PATCH 4/7] x86/boot/32: Defer resyncing initial_page_table until percpu is set up

22 Mar 2017 16:20:05 -0800

The x86 smpboot trampoline expects initial_page_table to have the GDT mapped. If the GDT ends up in a virtually mapped percpu page, then it won't be
