       "This is primarily to get those r8169 reverts sorted, but other fixes
        have accumulated meanwhile.
         1) Revert two r8169 changes to fix suspend/resume for some users,
            from Francois Romieu.
         2) PCI dma mapping errors in atl1c are not checked for and this cause
            hard crashes for some users, from Xiong Huang.
         3) In 3.8.x we merged the removal of the EXPERIMENTAL dependency for
            'dlm' but the same patch for 'sctp' got lost somewhere, resulting
            in the potential for build errors since there are cross
            dependencies.  From Kees Cook.
         4) SCTP's ipv6 socket route validation makes boolean tests
            incorrectly, fix from Daniel Borkmann.
         5) mac80211 does sizeof(ptr) instead of (sizeof(ptr) * nelem), from
            Cong Ding.
         6) arp_rcv() can crash on shared non-linear packets, from Eric
         7) Avoid crashes in macvtap by setting ->gso_type consistently in
            ixgbe, qlcnic, and bnx2x drivers.  From Michael S Tsirkin and
            Alexander Duyck.
         8) Trinity fuzzer spots infinite loop in __skb_recv_datagram(), fix
            from Eric Dumazet.
         9) STP protocol frames should use high packet priority, otherwise an
            overloaded bridge can get stuck.  From Stephen Hemminger.
        10) The HTB packet scheduler was converted some time ago to store
            internal timestamps in nanoseconds, but we don't convert back into
            psched ticks for the user during dumps.  Fix from Jiri Pirko.
        11) mwl8k channel table doesn't set the .band field properly,
            resulting in NULL pointer derefs.  Fix from Jonas Gorski.
        12) mac80211 doesn't accumulate channels properly during a scan so we
            can downgrade heavily to a much less desirable connection speed.
            Fix from Johannes Berg.
        13) PHY probe failure in stmmac can result in resource leaks and
            double MDIO registery later, from Giuseppe CAVALLARO.
        14) Correct ipv6 checksumming in ip6t_NPT netfilter module, also fix
            address prefix mangling, from YOSHIFUJI Hideaki."

      net: sctp: sctp_v6_get_dst: fix boolean test in dst cache · e9c0dfba
      Daniel Borkmann authored
      We walk through the bind address list and try to get the best source
      address for a given destination. However, currently, we take the
      'continue' path of the loop when an entry is invalid (!laddr->valid)
      *and* the entry state does not equal SCTP_ADDR_SRC (laddr->state !=
      Thus, still, invalid entries with SCTP_ADDR_SRC might not 'continue'
      as well as valid entries with SCTP_ADDR_{NEW, SRC, DEL}, with a possible
      false baddr and matchlen as a result, causing in worst case dst route
      to be false or possibly NULL.
      This test should actually be a '||' instead of '&&'. But lets fix it
      and make this a bit easier to read by having the condition the same way
      as similarly done in sctp_v4_get_dst.

      batman-adv: Fix NULL pointer dereference in DAT hash collision avoidance · 816cd5b8
      Pau Koning authored
      An entry in DAT with the hashed position of 0 can cause a NULL pointer
      dereference when the first entry is checked by batadv_choose_next_candidate.
      This first candidate automatically has the max value of 0 and the max_orig_node
      of NULL. Not checking max_orig_node for NULL in batadv_is_orig_node_eligible
      will lead to a NULL pointer dereference when checking for the lowest address.
      This problem was added in 785ea114

      A user reported the following oops when a backup process reads
       BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffbb00ff33b000

        [<ffffffff81449692>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b
      Investigation determined that the bug triggered when reading
      system RAM at the 4G mark. On this system, that was the first
      address using 1G pages for the virt->phys direct mapping so the
      PUD is pointing to a physical address, not a PMD page.
      The problem is that the page table walker in kern_addr_valid() is
      not checking pud_large() and treats the physical address as if
      it was a PMD.  If it happens to look like pmd_none then it'll
      silently fail, probably returning zeros instead of real data. If
      the data happens to look like a present PMD though, it will be
      walked resulting in the oops above.
      This patch adds the necessary pud_large() check.
      Unfortunately the problem was not readily reproducible and now
      they are running the backup program without accessing
      /proc/kcore so the patch has not been validated but I think it
      makes sense.

      mwl8k: fix band for supported channels · d786f67e
      Jonas Gorski authored
      The band field for the supported channels were left unpopulated, making
      them default to 0 == IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ, even for the 5GHz channels.
      This resulted in null pointer accesses if anything tries to access
      wiphy->bands[channel->band] of a 5GHz channel on 5GHz only cards, since
      wiphy->bands[2GHZ] is NULL for them (e.g. cfg80211_chandef_usable does).

      bridge: set priority of STP packets · 547b4e71

      Spanning Tree Protocol packets should have always been marked as
      control packets, this causes them to get queued in the high prirority
      FIFO. As Radia Perlman mentioned in her LCA talk, STP dies if bridge

      x86/apic: Work around boot failure on HP ProLiant DL980 G7 Server systems · cb214ede
      Stoney Wang authored
      When a HP ProLiant DL980 G7 Server boots a regular kernel,
      there will be intermittent lost interrupts which could
      result in a hang or (in extreme cases) data loss.
      The reason is that this system only supports x2apic physical
      mode, while the kernel boots with a logical-cluster default
      This bug can be worked around by specifying the "x2apic_phys" or
      "nox2apic" boot option, but we want to handle this system
      without requiring manual workarounds.
      The BIOS sets ACPI_FADT_APIC_PHYSICAL in FADT table.
      As all apicids are smaller than 255, BIOS need to pass the
      control to the OS with xapic mode, according to x2apic-spec,
      chapter 2.9.
      Current code handle x2apic when BIOS pass with xapic mode
      When user specifies x2apic_phys, or FADT indicates PHYSICAL:
      1. During madt oem check, apic driver is set with xapic logical
         or xapic phys driver at first.
      2. enable_IR_x2apic() will enable x2apic_mode.
      3. if user specifies x2apic_phys on the boot line, x2apic_phys_probe()
         will install the correct x2apic phys driver and use x2apic phys mode.
         Otherwise it will skip the driver will let x2apic_cluster_probe to
         take over to install x2apic cluster driver (wrong one) even though FADT
         indicates PHYSICAL, because x2apic_phys_probe does not check
      Add checking x2apic_fadt_phys in x2apic_phys_probe() to fix the

      mac80211: fix channel selection bug · 3d9646d0
      Johannes Berg authored
      When trying to connect to an AP that advertises HT but not
      VHT, the mac80211 code erroneously uses the configuration
      from the AP as is instead of checking it against regulatory
      and local capabilities. This can lead to using an invalid
      or even inexistent channel (like 11/HT40+).
      Additionally, the return flags from downgrading must be
      ORed together, to collect them from all of the downgrades.
      Also clarify the message.

      The following patchset contains Netfilter/IPVS fixes for 3.8-rc7, they are:
      * Fix oops in IPVS state-sync due to releasing a random memory area due
        to unitialized pointer, from Dan Carpenter.
      * Fix SCTP flow establishment due to bad checksumming mangling in IPVS,
        from Daniel Borkmann.
      * Three fixes for the recently added IPv6 NPT, all from YOSHIFUJI Hideaki,
        with an amendment collapsed into those patches from Ulrich Weber. They
        fiix adjustment calculation, fix prefix mangling and ensure LSB of
        prefixes are zeroes (as required by RFC).
      Specifically, it took me a while to validate the 1's complement arithmetics/
      checksumming approach in the IPv6 NPT code.
