[PATCH bpf-next v14 0/4] bpf: Force to MPTCP
Posted by Geliang Tang 9 months, 1 week ago
As is described in the "How to use MPTCP?" section in MPTCP wiki [1]:

"Your app should create sockets with IPPROTO_MPTCP as the proto:
( socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_MPTCP); ). Legacy apps can be
forced to create and use MPTCP sockets instead of TCP ones via the
mptcpize command bundled with the mptcpd daemon."

But the mptcpize (LD_PRELOAD technique) command has some limitations
[2]:

 - it doesn't work if the application is not using libc (e.g. GoLang
apps)
 - in some envs, it might not be easy to set env vars / change the way
apps are launched, e.g. on Android
 - mptcpize needs to be launched with all apps that want MPTCP: we could
have more control from BPF to enable MPTCP only for some apps or all the
ones of a netns or a cgroup, etc.
 - it is not in BPF, we cannot talk about it at netdev conf.

So this patchset attempts to use BPF to implement functions similer to
mptcpize.

The main idea is to add a hook in sys_socket() to change the protocol id
from IPPROTO_TCP (or 0) to IPPROTO_MPTCP.

v14:
 - Use getsockopt(MPTCP_INFO) to verify mptcp protocol intead of using
nstat command.

v13:
 - drop "Use random netns name for mptcp" patch.

v12:
 - update diag_* log of update_socket_protocol.
 - add 'ip netns show' after 'ip netns del' to check if there is
a test did not clean up its netns.
 - return libbpf_get_error() instead of -EIO for the error from
open_and_load().
 - Use getsockopt(SOL_PROTOCOL) to verify mptcp protocol intead of
using 'ss -tOni'.

v11:
 - add comments about outputs of 'ss' and 'nstat'.
 - use "err = verify_mptcpify()" instead of using =+.

v10:
 - drop "#ifdef CONFIG_BPF_JIT".
 - include vmlinux.h and bpf_tracing_net.h to avoid defining some
macros.
 - drop unneeded checks for mptcp.

v9:
 - update comment for 'update_socket_protocol'.

v8:
 - drop the additional checks on the 'protocol' value after the
'update_socket_protocol()' call.

v7:
 - add __weak and __diag_* for update_socket_protocol.

v6:
 - add update_socket_protocol.

v5:
 - add bpf_mptcpify helper.

v4:
 - use lsm_cgroup/socket_create

v3:
 - patch 8: char cmd[128]; -> char cmd[256];

v2:
 - Fix build selftests errors reported by CI
