Update system to Service Pack 2 level.
Release Notes for UnitedLinux 1.0 IPF Service Pack 2 (SP2)
A Service Pack 1 for IPF was never released. As Service Pack Levels stand for a certain code level and this is now based on the SP2 code level alias "CGL" we thus call this Service Pack SP2.

1. Enhancements
1.1 Carrier Grade Linux Features
Section 1.1 describes all features which are part of the Carrier Grade Linux Requirements Definition V1.1 and which have been newly implemented in or enhanced with Service Pack 2. The numbers in brackets are taken from the Carrier Grade Linux Requirements Definition V1.1 numbering scheme.
The detailed Carrier Grade Linux specification can be found under
1.1.1 Standards Event Logging POSIX IEEE 1003.25 [1.3]
Provide event logging support that fully complies with the draft POSIX 1003.25 standard. This will allow structuring of kernel messages and thus easier detect and react on fault events. IPv6 RFCs [1.4.1]
Provide support for IPv6 for delivering next generation networks support. Advantages of IPv6 over the currently used IPv4 protocol are wider address space, better autodetection and autoconfiguration of networks, hosts and services and more efficient routing and broadcasting. IPSECv6 RFCs [1.4.2]
Provide support for IPSECv6 for delivering encryption and authentication of low-level packets and thus secure communication across the next generation networks. Made implementation also work with IPSECv4 userspace (FreeSWAN). MIPv6 RFCs [1.4.3]
Provide support for mobile IPv6, which specifies the operation of mobile computers and devics using IPv6. This allows each mobile node to be identified by its home address regardless of its current point of attachement. POSIX Threads Standards Compliance [1.6]
Used NGPT to ease port applications using POSIX threads.
1.1.2 Platform Remote Boot Support [2.2]
Support remote booting across common LAN and WAN communication media. This is very usefull for diskless systems and/or rack mounted servers. Boot Cycle Detection [2.3]
The system will detect a frequent reboot cycle due to recurring failure and will go offline instead of causing any further trouble e.g. by creating a lot of network traffic or faulty data. Diskless Systems [2.5]
Provide support for diskless systems loading their application or the whole system over the network.
1.1.3 Availability Watchdog Timer Interface Requirements [3.2.1]
Support watchdog timers. These timers allow to perform a certain operation like a reboot in case a timeout occurs. A working system will reset these timers regularly where a hanging system could get rebooted by a watchdog timer action. This also includes support for watchdog hardware used in Telco systems. Application Heartbeat Monitor [3.3]
Allows to monitor applications for availability and proper functionality. A heartbeat signal generated periodically from the application shows that it is still alive. In case no further signal arrives a failover setup/script can be triggered. Ethernet Link Aggregation [3.4.1]
Support bonding of multiple ethernet cards for bandwidth aggregation. RAID 1 Support [3.5.1]
Provide mirroring support to maintain duplicate sets of all data on separate disk drives.
1.1.4 Servicability Platform Signal Handler [4.5]
Provide infrastructure to allow interrupts generated by "hardware errors" to be logged using the event logging mechanism. Remote Access to Event Log [4.6]
Allow to access the event log information from remote.
1.1.5 Tools User-Level (gdb) Debug Support for Threads [5.1]
Support debugging of multi-threaded programs via gdb.
1.1.6 Performance Soft Real-Time Performance [6.1.1]
Provide capability to configure scheduler to provide soft real time support with a low latency. Low latency support [6.1.2]
Reduce the latency of the kernel reaction to realtime or interactive events for low-priority processes even if the kernel works under heavy load. RAID 0 Support [6.2]
Provide RAID 0 (striping) support to enhance performance for request-rate-intensitive or transfer-rate-intensitive environments. Application Pre-Loading [6.3]
Support fully loading and pinning the pages of an application before execution. This will make sure no slowdown can happen as with demand paged execution. This is very usefull in diskless environments to reduce network traffic and burst execution speed. Concurrent Timers Scaling Behaviour and Report [6.4.1]
Support large number and better scalability of many concurrent timers.
1.2 Other enhancements

1.2.2 Kernel performance and scalability improvements Include sys_epoll system call
A new very usefull system call epoll() was added. This is usefull for application which have to listen on many things at once and where the select() call is way too inefficient.
Important note: The kernel implementation currently only supports edge-triggered and not level-triggered behaviour. Efficient support for raw vector IO
Defines readv/writev methods for raw IO which coalesce the iovecs into a single IO operation. Without this patch the kernel uses repeated invocations of the device's read/write functions. Improves TPC-H/DB2 benchmark by 50%. Raw IO optimization patch
Increases the blocksize used for raw IO. Improves CPU
utilization by reducing the number of buffer heads needed
for such operations. Improves TPC-H by 16%. Update hugetlbfs
Update hugetlbfs to latest 2.5 level. Dynamic configuration/tuning of scheduler
Added sysctl_sched_yield_scale feature that allows choosing between
optimization for scalability and interactiveness. By default it is
switched off, so the behaviour is completely unchanged. For certain
benchmarks, one wants to "echo 1 > /proc/sys/sched_yield_scale"
1.2.3 Other new kernel features and optimizations
The following smaller kernel features/optimizations were added:
  • add hidden network device functionality
  • make sigaction SA_NOCLDWAIT posix compliant
  • increase maximum number of kernel command line args
  • bootsplash code update can hide boot messages behind splashscreen
  • add config variable CONFIG_UNITEDLINUX_KERNEL to allow distinguish a UnitedLinux kernel from the vanilla kernel
  • decrease time spent on get_unmapped_area function
  • better wakeup algorithm for kinoded feature
  • define readv/writev methods for raw IO which coalesce the iovecs into a single IO operation. Backport from 2.4.21-pre5aa1
  • merge elevator-merge-fast-path feature from CVS head
  • fixed unecessary splitting of last segments in merged scsi requests
1.2.4 Updated RAS tools
The following RAS tools were updated to the latest versions:
  • Updated evlog to version 1.5.1
  • Updated heartbeat to version 1.0.3
1.2.5 New packages
  • Added CGL packages

The original comments from the 2.5 changesets related to this bug are: + [NET]: Fix hashing exploits in ipv4 routing, IP conntrack, + and TCP synq. + + Several hash table implementations in the networking were + remotely exploitable. Remote attackers could launch attacks + whereby, using carefully choosen forged source addresses, + make every routing cache entry get hashed into the same hash + chain. + + Netfilter's IP conntrack module and the TCP syn-queue + implementation had identical vulnerabilities and have been + fixed too. The choosen solution to the problem involved + using Bob's Jenkins hash along with a randomly choosen + input. For the ipv4 routing cache we take things one step + further and periodically choose a new random secret. By + default this happens every 10 minutes, but this is + configurable by the user via sysctl knobs. + [NET]: Cosmetic cleanups of jhash code. + - Consistent naming (i.e. jhash_xxx) + - Reduces the 2&amp;1 word variants to call jhash_3words() + - Replaces __inline__ with inline.
  • Add patches.common/ioport. The original comment from the 2.5 changeset for this bug is: + This makes sure that the ioperm bitmap in the TSS is + correctly set up during the first ioperm() call. Without + this the TSS bitmap contains random garbage until the next + context switch.
