Subject: [PATCH net] core: Don't skip generic XDP program execution for cloned SKBs
Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2020 17:10:46 +0100
Message-ID: <20200210161046.221258-1-toke@redhat.com> (raw)

The current generic XDP handler skips execution of XDP programs entirely if
an SKB is marked as cloned. This leads to some surprising behaviour, as
packets can end up being cloned in various ways, which will make an XDP
program not see all the traffic on an interface.

This was discovered by a simple test case where an XDP program that always
returns XDP_DROP is installed on a veth device. When combining this with
the Scapy packet sniffer (which uses an AF_PACKET) socket on the sending
side, SKBs reliably end up in the cloned state, causing them to be passed
through to the receiving interface instead of being dropped. A minimal
reproducer script for this is included below.

This patch fixed the issue by simply triggering the existing linearisation
code for cloned SKBs instead of skipping the XDP program execution. This
behaviour is in line with the behaviour of the native XDP implementation
for the veth driver, which will reallocate and copy the SKB data if the SKB
is marked as shared.

Reproducer Python script (requires BCC and Scapy):

from scapy.all import TCP, IP, Ether, sendp, sniff, AsyncSniffer, Raw, UDP
from bcc import BPF
import time, sys, subprocess, shlex

SKB_MODE = (1 << 1)
DRV_MODE = (1 << 2)

def client():
    # Sniffing on the sender causes skb_cloned() to be set
    s = AsyncSniffer()

    for p in range(10):
        sendp(Ether(dst="aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa", src="cc:cc:cc:cc:cc:cc")/IP()/UDP()/Raw("Test"),

    return 0

def server(mode):
    prog = BPF(text="int dummy_drop(struct xdp_md *ctx) {return XDP_DROP;}")
    func = prog.load_func("dummy_drop", BPF.XDP)
    prog.attach_xdp("a_to_b", func, mode)


    s = sniff(iface="a_to_b", count=10, timeout=15)
    if len(s):
        print(f"Got {len(s)} packets - should have gotten 0")
        return 1
        print("Got no packets - as expected")
        return 0

if len(sys.argv) < 2:
    print(f"Usage: {sys.argv[0]} <skb|drv>")

if sys.argv[1] == "client":
elif sys.argv[1] == "server":
    mode = SKB_MODE if sys.argv[2] == 'skb' else DRV_MODE
        mode = sys.argv[1]
        if mode not in ('skb', 'drv'):
            print(f"Usage: {sys.argv[0]} <skb|drv>")
        print(f"Running in {mode} mode")

        for cmd in [
                'ip netns add netns_a',
                'ip netns add netns_b',
                'ip -n netns_a link add a_to_b type veth peer name b_to_a netns netns_b',
                # Disable ipv6 to make sure there's no address autoconf traffic
                'ip netns exec netns_a sysctl -qw net.ipv6.conf.a_to_b.disable_ipv6=1',
                'ip netns exec netns_b sysctl -qw net.ipv6.conf.b_to_a.disable_ipv6=1',
                'ip -n netns_a link set dev a_to_b address aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa',
                'ip -n netns_b link set dev b_to_a address cc:cc:cc:cc:cc:cc',
                'ip -n netns_a link set dev a_to_b up',
                'ip -n netns_b link set dev b_to_a up']:

        server = subprocess.Popen(shlex.split(f"ip netns exec netns_a {PYTHON} {sys.argv[0]} server {mode}"))
        client = subprocess.Popen(shlex.split(f"ip netns exec netns_b {PYTHON} {sys.argv[0]} client"))


        subprocess.run(shlex.split("ip netns delete netns_a"))
        subprocess.run(shlex.split("ip netns delete netns_b"))
