Description Mads 2012-06-26 13:52:59 UTC
Installed the stage3 release candidate and set up a new kernel with support for x32, but I cannot figure out why DHCP won't work.

localhost ~ # dhcpcd eth0
dhcpcd[1979]: version 5.5.6 starting
dhcpcd[1979]: eth0: broadcasting for a lease
dhcpcd[1979]: eth0: open_socket: Invalid argument
dhcpcd[1979]: eth0: send_raw_packet: Bad file descriptor

I've got CONFIG_PACKET enabled:

localhost ~ # zgrep -i -E 'packet|unix' /proc/config.gz 

localhost ~ # uname -a
Linux localhost 3.4.4-gentoo #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 26 11:52:25 CEST 2012 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I have even tested with glibc-9999, but the problem did not disappear. Is there a simple kernel CONFIG I have missed?

dhcpcd is version 5.5.6, the same happens with dhclient from net-misc/dhcp.

could you strace it and post the log as an attachment ?

Hi Roy,

can you take a look at this?


Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-07-01 19:04:11 UTC
i've debugged it a bit.  pretty sure it's a bug in the kernel for the x32 abi.  i'll send a patch to the kernel mailing list for it.
Comment 7 Roy Marples 2012-07-02 08:22:41 UTC
Probably the wrong place to ask but what is x32 and why should dhcpcd care about it?

Thanks for looking into it Mike :)
Comment 8 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-07-02 09:16:28 UTC
Roy it's the a new ABI for x86-64 ( fwiw).

Basically what could happen in this situation is that it's using the wrong parameters' size when doing syscalls — it's x86-64 with 32-bit long and pointers, but a number of data types are also moved to 64-bit like if LFS was forced on.
Comment 9 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2012-07-14 22:21:40 UTC
Is there any more information on this bug? Is there a fix or dependency
needed for dhcpcd?

I don't have a fix, but I do have a workaround:

1. add '=net-misc/dhcpcd-5.5.6 dhcpcd_amd64' to /etc/portage/package.env
2. add 'CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -m64"' to /etc/portage/env/dhcpcd_amd64
3. add 'CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS} -m64"' to/etc/portage/env/dhcpcd_amd64
4. add 'LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -Wl,-m,elf_x86_64 -m64"' to /etc/portage/env/dhcpcd_amd64
5. re-emerge dhcpcd

Of course, this forces dhcpcd to use the amd64 ABI, but should be good enough until a fix can be creaated.
Comment 11 Roy Marples 2012-08-06 06:49:23 UTC
Looking @ the strace, the error in question is
setsockopt(11, SOL_SOCKET, SO_ATTACH_FILTER, "\t\0\0\0@[A\0", 8)

So that's basically when we try to install the BPF filter for the interface.
dhclient does the same operation - so does that fail in the same way?

Yes, it does.
Comment 13 Roy Marples 2012-08-06 09:32:23 UTC
IIRC busybox dhcpc client also implements a BPF filter so testing that would be helpful also.
The only other thing I know of in userland that uses this kind of filtering is tcpdump/wireshark and friends. Can you use basic filtering there?

sudo tcpdump -i eth0 'udp[2:2] == 68'
Comment 14 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-08-18 20:13:03 UTC
finally got around to setting a qemu image and testing this out and it's what i thought -- we need the compat syscalls for the x32 api

i've sent the patch upstream.  unfortunately, you'll need to do:
 - apply patch to your kernel
 - apply patch to linux-headers
 - rebuild glibc

then dhcpcd will work
Comment 15 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-08-18 20:34:18 UTC
(In reply to comment #14)

err, and obviously rebuild & reboot your kernel
Comment 16 Greg Kubaryk 2012-09-15 21:52:57 UTC
FWIW, the Changelog for Linux kernel 3.5.4 indicates that SpanKY's patch has landed.
Comment 17 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-09-27 05:09:30 UTC
upstream has accepted my patches and put into various stable branches.  only thing left is to wait for new versions to be released, and upgrades will fix this automatically.  nothing left to do afaict.
Comment 18 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-10-01 05:58:22 UTC
linux-3.6 is out.  if you upgrade your kernel to 3.6, upgrade your linux-headers to 3.6, and then rebuild your glibc against that, things should work for you.
Comment 19 Mads 2012-10-01 07:25:31 UTC
Thanks! Nice work!
