bpf: Add BPF-helper for MTU checking
This BPF-helper bpf_check_mtu() works for both XDP and TC-BPF programs. The SKB object is complex and the skb->len value (accessible from BPF-prog) also include the length of any extra GRO/GSO segments, but without taking into account that these GRO/GSO segments get added transport (L4) and network (L3) headers before being transmitted. Thus, this BPF-helper is created such that the BPF-programmer don't need to handle these details in the BPF-prog. The API is designed to help the BPF-programmer, that want to do packet context size changes, which involves other helpers. These other helpers usually does a delta size adjustment. This helper also support a delta size (len_diff), which allow BPF-programmer to reuse arguments needed by these other helpers, and perform the MTU check prior to doing any actual size adjustment of the packet context. It is on purpose, that we allow the len adjustment to become a negative result, that will pass the MTU check. This might seem weird, but it's not this helpers responsibility to "catch" wrong len_diff adjustments. Other helpers will take care of these checks, if BPF-programmer chooses to do actual size adjustment. V14: - Improve man-page desc of len_diff. V13: - Enforce flag BPF_MTU_CHK_SEGS cannot use len_diff. V12: - Simplify segment check that calls skb_gso_validate_network_len. - Helpers should return long V9: - Use dev->hard_header_len (instead of ETH_HLEN) - Annotate with unlikely req from Daniel - Fix logic error using skb_gso_validate_network_len from Daniel V6: - Took John's advice and dropped BPF_MTU_CHK_RELAX - Returned MTU is kept at L3-level (like fib_lookup) V4: Lot of changes - ifindex 0 now use current netdev for MTU lookup - rename helper from bpf_mtu_check to bpf_check_mtu - fix bug for GSO pkt length (as skb->len is total len) - remove __bpf_len_adj_positive, simply allow negative len adj Signed-off-by: Jesper Dangaard Brouer <brouer@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <daniel@iogearbox.net> Acked-by: John Fastabend <john.fastabend@gmail.com> Link: https://lore.kernel.org/bpf/161287790461.790810.3429728639563297353.stgit@firesoul

+ * Description
+
+ * Check ctx packet size against exceeding MTU of net device (based
+ * on *ifindex*). This helper will likely be used in combination
+ * with helpers that adjust/change the packet size.
+ *
+ * The argument *len_diff* can be used for querying with a planned
+ * size change. This allows to check MTU prior to changing packet
+ * ctx. Providing an *len_diff* adjustment that is larger than the
+ * actual packet size (resulting in negative packet size) will in
+ * principle not exceed the MTU, why it is not considered a
+ * failure. Other BPF-helpers are needed for performing the
+ * planned size change, why the responsability for catch a negative
+ * packet size belong in those helpers.
+ *
+ * Specifying *ifindex* zero means the MTU check is performed
+ * against the current net device. This is practical if this isn't
+ * used prior to redirect.
+ *
+ * The Linux kernel route table can configure MTUs on a more
+ * specific per route level, which is not provided by this helper.
+ * For route level MTU checks use the **bpf_fib_lookup**\ ()
+ * helper.
+ *
+ * *ctx* is either **struct xdp_md** for XDP programs or
+ * **struct sk_buff** for tc cls_act programs.
+ *
+ * The *flags* argument can be a combination of one or more of the
+ * following values:
+ *
+ * **BPF_MTU_CHK_SEGS**
+ * This flag will only works for *ctx* **struct sk_buff**.
+ * If packet context contains extra packet segment buffers
+ * (often knows as GSO skb), then MTU check is harder to
+ * check at this point, because in transmit path it is
+ * possible for the skb packet to get re-segmented
+ * (depending on net device features). This could still be
+ * a MTU violation, so this flag enables performing MTU
+ * check against segments, with a different violation
+ * return code to tell it apart. Check cannot use len_diff.
+ *
+ * On return *mtu_len* pointer contains the MTU value of the net
+ * device. Remember the net device configured MTU is the L3 size,
+ * which is returned here and XDP and TX length operate at L2.
+ * Helper take this into account for you, but remember when using
+ * MTU value in your BPF-code. On input *mtu_len* must be a valid
+ * pointer and be initialized (to zero), else verifier will reject
+ * BPF program.
+ *
+ * Return
+ * * 0 on success, and populate MTU value in *mtu_len* pointer.
+ *
+ * * < 0 if any input argument is invalid (*mtu_len* not updated)
+ *
+ * MTU violations return positive values, but also populate MTU
+ * value in *mtu_len* pointer, as this can be needed for
+ * implementing PMTU handing:
+ *
+ * * **BPF_MTU_CHK_RET_FRAG_NEEDED**
