[PATCH nf-next 0/6] netfilter: handle ipv6 jumbo packets properly for bridge ovs and tc

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Currently pskb_trim_rcsum() is always done on the RX path. However, IPv6
jumbo packets hide the real packet len in the Hop-by-hop option header,
which should be parsed before doing the trim.

In ip6_rcv_core() it calls ipv6_parse_hopopts() to handle the Hop-by-hop
option header then do pskb_trim_rcsum(). The similar process should also
be done properly before pskb_trim_rcsum() on the RX path of bridge and
openvswitch and tc.

This patchset improves the function handling the Hop-by-hop option header
in bridge, and moves this function into netfilter utils, and then uses it
in nf_conntrack_ovs for openvswitch and tc conntrack.

Note that this patch is especially needed after the IPv6 BIG TCP was
supported in kernel, which is using IPv6 Jumbo packets, and the last
patch adds a big tcp selftest, which also covers it.

Xin Long (6):
  netfilter: bridge: call pskb_may_pull in br_nf_check_hbh_len
  netfilter: bridge: check len before accessing more nh data
  netfilter: bridge: move pskb_trim_rcsum out of br_nf_check_hbh_len
  netfilter: move br_nf_check_hbh_len to utils
  netfilter: use nf_ip6_check_hbh_len in nf_ct_skb_network_trim
  selftests: add a selftest for big tcp
