Hi,

I went through  all changes in batman-adv since v4.19 with a Fixes: line
and checked whether they were backported to the LTS kernels. The ones which
weren't ported and applied to this branch are now part of this patch series.

There are also following three patches included:

* batman-adv: Consider fragmentation for needed_headroom
* batman-adv: Reserve needed_*room for fragments
* batman-adv: Don't always reallocate the fragmentation skb head

which could in some circumstances cause packet loss but which were created
to fix high CPU load/low throughput problems. But I've added them here
anyway because the corresponding VXLAN patches were also added to stable.
And some stable kernels also got these fixes a while back.

Kind regards,
	Sven

From: Linus Lüssing <linus.luessing@c0d3.blue>

commit 3236d215ad38a3f5372e65cd1e0a52cf93d3c6a2 upstream.

Scenario:
* Multicast frame send from a BLA backbone (multiple nodes with
  their bat0 bridged together, with BLA enabled)

Issue:
* BLA backbone nodes receive the frame multiple times on bat0

For multicast frames received via batman-adv broadcast packets the
originator of the broadcast packet is checked before decapsulating and
forwarding the frame to bat0 (batadv_bla_is_backbone_gw()->
batadv_recv_bcast_packet()). If it came from a node which shares the
same BLA backbone with us then it is not forwarded to bat0 to avoid a
loop.

When sending a multicast frame in a non-4-address batman-adv unicast
packet we are currently missing this check - and cannot do so because
the batman-adv unicast packet has no originator address field.

However, we can simply fix this on the sender side by only sending the
multicast frame via unicasts to interested nodes which do not share the
same BLA backbone with us. This also nicely avoids some unnecessary
transmissions on mesh side.

Note that no infinite loop was observed, probably because of dropping
via batadv_interface_tx()->batadv_bla_tx(). However the duplicates still
utterly confuse switches/bridges, ICMPv6 duplicate address detection and
neighbor discovery and therefore leads to long delays before being able
to establish TCP connections, for instance. And it also leads to the Linux
bridge printing messages like:
"br-lan: received packet on eth1 with own address as source address ..."

commit 4ca23e2c2074465bff55ea14221175fecdf63c5f upstream.

If a batman-adv packets has to be fragmented, then the original batman-adv
packet header is not stripped away. Instead, only a new header is added in
front of the packet after it was split.

This size must be considered to avoid cost intensive reallocations during
the transmission through the various device layers.

commit c5cbfc87558168ef4c3c27ce36eba6b83391db19 upstream.

The batadv net_device is trying to propagate the needed_headroom and
needed_tailroom from the lower devices. This is needed to avoid cost
intensive reallocations using pskb_expand_head during the transmission.

But the fragmentation code split the skb's without adding extra room at the
end/beginning of the various fragments. This reduced the performance of
transmissions over complex scenarios (batadv on vxlan on wireguard) because
the lower devices had to perform the reallocations at least once.

commit 992b03b88e36254e26e9a4977ab948683e21bd9f upstream.

When a packet is fragmented by batman-adv, the original batman-adv header
is not modified. Only a new fragmentation is inserted between the original
one and the ethernet header. The code must therefore make sure that it has
a writable region of this size in the skbuff head.

But it is not useful to always reallocate the skbuff by this size even when
there would be more than enough headroom still in the skb. The reallocation
is just to costly during in this codepath.

From: Linus Lüssing <linus.luessing@c0d3.blue>

commit 3236d215ad38a3f5372e65cd1e0a52cf93d3c6a2 upstream.

Scenario:
* Multicast frame send from a BLA backbone (multiple nodes with
  their bat0 bridged together, with BLA enabled)

Issue:
* BLA backbone nodes receive the frame multiple times on bat0

For multicast frames received via batman-adv broadcast packets the
originator of the broadcast packet is checked before decapsulating and
forwarding the frame to bat0 (batadv_bla_is_backbone_gw()->
batadv_recv_bcast_packet()). If it came from a node which shares the
same BLA backbone with us then it is not forwarded to bat0 to avoid a
loop.

When sending a multicast frame in a non-4-address batman-adv unicast
packet we are currently missing this check - and cannot do so because
the batman-adv unicast packet has no originator address field.

However, we can simply fix this on the sender side by only sending the
multicast frame via unicasts to interested nodes which do not share the
same BLA backbone with us. This also nicely avoids some unnecessary
transmissions on mesh side.

Note that no infinite loop was observed, probably because of dropping
via batadv_interface_tx()->batadv_bla_tx(). However the duplicates still
utterly confuse switches/bridges, ICMPv6 duplicate address detection and
neighbor discovery and therefore leads to long delays before being able
to establish TCP connections, for instance. And it also leads to the Linux
bridge printing messages like:
"br-lan: received packet on eth1 with own address as source address ..."

From: Sven Eckelmann <sven@narfation.org>

commit c5cbfc87558168ef4c3c27ce36eba6b83391db19 upstream.

The batadv net_device is trying to propagate the needed_headroom and
needed_tailroom from the lower devices. This is needed to avoid cost
intensive reallocations using pskb_expand_head during the transmission.

But the fragmentation code split the skb's without adding extra room at the
end/beginning of the various fragments. This reduced the performance of
transmissions over complex scenarios (batadv on vxlan on wireguard) because
the lower devices had to perform the reallocations at least once.

commit 4ca23e2c2074465bff55ea14221175fecdf63c5f upstream.

If a batman-adv packets has to be fragmented, then the original batman-adv
packet header is not stripped away. Instead, only a new header is added in
front of the packet after it was split.

This size must be considered to avoid cost intensive reallocations during
the transmission through the various device layers.
