    arp_notify: unconditionally send gratuitous ARP for NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEERS.

    commit d11327a upstream.
    NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEER is an explicit request by the driver to send a link
    notification while NETDEV_UP/NETDEV_CHANGEADDR generate link
    notifications as a sort of side effect.
    In the later cases the sysctl option is present because link
    notification events can have undesired effects e.g. if the link is
    flapping. I don't think this applies in the case of an explicit
    request from a driver.
    This patch makes NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEER unconditional, if preferred we
    could add a new sysctl for this case which defaults to on.
    This change causes Xen post-migration ARP notifications (which cause
    switches to relearn their MAC tables etc) to be sent by default.

    DNS: Fix a NULL pointer deref when trying to read an error key [CVE-2…

    commit 1362fa0 upstream.
    When a DNS resolver key is instantiated with an error indication, attempts to
    read that key will result in an oops because user_read() is expecting there to
    be a payload - and there isn't one [CVE-2011-1076].
    Give the DNS resolver key its own read handler that returns the error cached in
    key->type_data.x[0] as an error rather than crashing.
    Also make the kenter() at the beginning of dns_resolver_instantiate() limit the
    amount of data it prints, since the data is not necessarily NUL-terminated.
    The buggy code was added in:
    	commit 4a2d789
    	Author: Wang Lei <>
    	Date:   Wed Aug 11 09:37:58 2010 +0100
    	Subject: DNS: If the DNS server returns an error, allow that to be cached [ver #2]
    This can trivially be reproduced by any user with the following program
    compiled with -lkeyutils:
    	#include <stdlib.h>
    	#include <keyutils.h>
    	#include <err.h>
    	static char payload[] = "#dnserror=6";
    	int main()
    		key_serial_t key;
    		key = add_key("dns_resolver", "a", payload, sizeof(payload),
    		if (key == -1)
    			err(1, "add_key");
    		if (keyctl_read(key, NULL, 0) == -1)
    			err(1, "read_key");
    		return 0;
    What should happen is that keyctl_read() reports error 6 (ENXIO) to the user:
    	dns-break: read_key: No such device or address
    but instead the kernel oopses.
    This cannot be reproduced with the 'keyutils add' or 'keyutils padd' commands
    as both of those cut the data down below the NUL termination that must be
    included in the data.  Without this dns_resolver_instantiate() will return
    -EINVAL and the key will not be instantiated such that it can be read.
    The oops looks like:

    e1000e: disable broken PHY wakeup for ICH10 LOMs, use MAC wakeup instead

    commit 4def99b upstream.
    When support for 82577/82578 was added[1] in 2.6.31, PHY wakeup was in-
    advertently enabled (even though it does not function properly) on ICH10
    LOMs.  This patch makes it so that the ICH10 LOMs use MAC wakeup instead
    as was done with the initial support for those devices (i.e. 82567LM-3,
    82567LF-3 and 82567V-4).

    dccp: fix oops on Reset after close

    commit 720dc34 upstream.
    This fixes a bug in the order of dccp_rcv_state_process() that still permitted
    reception even after closing the socket. A Reset after close thus causes a NULL
    pointer dereference by not preventing operations on an already torn-down socket.

    r8169: disable ASPM

    commit ba04c7c upstream.
    For some time is known that ASPM is causing troubles on r8169, i.e. make
    device randomly stop working without any errors in dmesg.
    Currently Tomi Leppikangas reports that system with r8169 device hangs
    with MCE errors when ASPM is enabled:
    Lets disable ASPM for r8169 devices at all, to avoid problems with
    r8169 PCIe devices at least for some users.

    nilfs2: fix regression that i-flag is not set on changeless checkpoints

    commit 72746ac upstream.
    According to the report from Jiro SEKIBA titled "regression in
    2.6.37?"  (Message-Id: <>), on 2.6.37 and
    later kernels, lscp command no longer displays "i" flag on checkpoints
    that snapshot operations or garbage collection created.
    This is a regression of nilfs2 checkpointing function, and it's
    critical since it broke behavior of a part of nilfs2 applications.
    For instance, snapshot manager of TimeBrowse gets to create
    meaningless snapshots continuously; snapshot creation triggers another
    checkpoint, but applications cannot distinguish whether the new
    checkpoint contains meaningful changes or not without the i-flag.
    This patch fixes the regression and brings that application behavior
    back to normal.

    block: blk-flush shouldn't call directly into q->request_fn() __blk_r…

    commit 255bb49 upstream.
    blk-flush decomposes a flush into sequence of multiple requests.  On
    completion of a request, the next one is queued; however, block layer
    must not implicitly call into q->request_fn() directly from completion
    path.  This makes the queue behave unexpectedly when seen from the
    drivers and violates the assumption that q->request_fn() is called
    with process context + queue_lock.
    This patch makes blk-flush the following two changes to make sure
    q->request_fn() is not called directly from request completion path.
    - blk_flush_complete_seq_end_io() now asks __blk_run_queue() to always
      use kblockd instead of calling directly into q->request_fn().
    - queue_next_fseq() uses ELEVATOR_INSERT_REQUEUE instead of
      ELEVATOR_INSERT_FRONT so that elv_insert() doesn't try to unplug the
      request queue directly.

    blk-throttle: Do not use kblockd workqueue for throtl work

    commit 450adcb upstream.
    o Dominik Klein reported a system hang issue while doing some blkio
      throttling testing.
    o Some tracing revealed that CFQ was not dispatching any more jobs as
      queue unplug was not happening. And queue unplug was not happening
      because unplug work was not being called as there was one throttling
      work on same cpu which as not finished yet. And throttling work had not
      finished as it was tyring to dispatch a bio to CFQ but all the request
      descriptors were consume to it was put to sleep.
    o So basically it is a cyclic dependecny between CFQ unplug work and
      throtl dispatch work. Tejun suggested that use separate workqueue for
      such cases.
    o This patch uses a separate workqueue for throttle related work and
      does not rely on kblockd workqueue anymore.

    drm/i915: fix memory corruption with GM965 and >4GB RAM

    commit 6927faf upstream.
    On a Thinkpad x61s, I noticed some memory corruption when
    plugging/unplugging the external VGA connection. The symptoms are that
    4 bytes at the beginning of a page get overwritten by zeroes.
    The address of the corruption varies when rebooting the machine, but
    stays constant while it's running (so it's possible to repeatedly write
    some data and then corrupt it again by plugging the cable).
    Further investigation revealed that the corrupted address is
    (dev_priv->status_page_dmah->busaddr & 0xffffffff), ie. the beginning of
    the hardware status page of the i965 graphics card, cut to 32 bits.
    So it seems that for some memory access, the hardware uses only 32 bit
    addressing. If the hardware status page is located >4GB, this
    corrupts unrelated memory.

    e1000e: 82579 PHY incorrectly identified during init

    commit 664dc87 upstream.
    During init, reading the 2 PHY ID registers back-to-back in the default
    fast mode could return invalid data (all F's) and in slow mode could
    return data to the second read the data from the first read.  To resolve
    the issue in fast mode, set to slow mode before any PHY accesses; to
    resolve the issue in slow mode, put in a delay for every 82579 PHY access.
    Since this PHY is currently only paired with the pch2lan MAC and the PHY
    type is not known before the first PHY access which can fail this way,
    check for this based on MAC-type.

    ext2: Fix link count corruption under heavy link+rename load

    commit e8a80c6 upstream.
    vfs_rename_other() does not lock renamed inode with i_mutex. Thus changing
    i_nlink in a non-atomic manner (which happens in ext2_rename()) can corrupt
    it as reported and analyzed by Josh.
    In fact, there is no good reason to mess with i_nlink of the moved file.
    We did it presumably to simulate linking into the new directory and unlinking
    from an old one. But the practical effect of this is disputable because fsck
    can possibly treat file as being properly linked into both directories without
    writing any error which is confusing. So we just stop increment-decrement
    games with i_nlink which also fixes the corruption.

    clockevents: Prevent oneshot mode when broadcast device is periodic

    commit 3a142a0 upstream.
    When the per cpu timer is marked CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_C3STOP, then we only
    can switch into oneshot mode, when the backup broadcast device
    supports oneshot mode as well. Otherwise we would try to switch the
    broadcast device into an unsupported mode unconditionally. This went
    unnoticed so far as the current available broadcast devices support
    oneshot mode. Seth unearthed this problem while debugging and working
    around an hpet related BIOS wreckage.
    Add the necessary check to tick_is_oneshot_available().

    Single threaded NTFS-3G could get stuck if a delayed RELEASE reply

    They noticed when only 4 bytes were set to 0 instead of 8,

    Mathew pointed out:
     | We're supposed to be resetting trampoline_phys_low and
     | trampoline_phys_high here, which are two 16-bit values.
     | Writing 64 bits is definitely going to overwrite space
