Linux: Adding SCTP_SENDALL support

0 votes

I'd like to add SCTP_SENDALL support to the kernel and lksctp-tools to port a FreeBSD project to Linux. Does anyone have pointers on where to get started or who to talk to about this? Is there any reason it's not already implemented besides just no one doing the work yet?

SCTP_SENDALL is also an api from rfc6458, I think it's just not yet done in Linux.
I guess you have to do some adjustments in sctp_sendmsg, considering there is no sctp_iterator_work unlike in BSD.
I don't think we need to add some things in lkscp-tools to support this, as long as we update uapi sctp.h in our system.

Are the values in /proc/sys/net/sctp/sctp_[rw]mem honored? Or are they overridden by those in /proc/sys/net/core/[rw]mem_*

Furthermore, the kernel documentation states that sctp_wmem has no effect, but makes no such mention for sctp_mem and sctp_rmem.

I'm adding experimental support for UDP encapsulation of SCTP packets. I got most of if working well. However, I noticed a NULL pointer dereference in sctp_packet_transmit as I assumed that packet->transport->asoc weren't NULL so I tried to access tunneling information that I store in packet->transport->asoc->ep->base.

In what circumstances is assoc NULL in sctp_packet_transmit?
