+Inter Process Networking (IPN)
+
+IPN is an Inter Process Communication service. It uses the same programming
+interface and protocols used for networking. Processes using IPN are connected
+to a "network" (many to many communication). The messages or packets sent by a
+process on an IPN network can be delivered to many other processes connected to
+the same IPN network, potentially to all the other processes. Different
+protocols can be defined on the IPN service. The basic one is the broadcast
+(level 1) protocol: all the packets get received by all the processes but the
+sender. It is also possible to define more sophisticated protocols. For example
+it is possible to have IPN sockets dipatching packets using the Ethernet
+protocol (like a Virtual Distributed Ethernet - VDE switch), or Internet
+Protocol (like a layer 3 switch). These are just examples, several other
+policies can be defined.  
+
+Description:
+------------
+
+The Berkeley socket Application Programming Interface (API) was designed for
+client server applications and for point-to-point communications. There is not
+a support for broadcasting/multicasting domains.
+
+IPN updates the interface by introducing a new protocol family (PF_IPN or
+AF_IPN). PF_IPN is similar to PF_UNIX but for IPN the Socket API calls have a
+different (extended) behavior.
+
+   #include <sys/socket.h>
+   #include <sys/un.h>
+   #include <sys/ipn.h>
+
+   sockfd = socket(AF_IPN, int socket_type, int protocol);
+
+creates a communication socket. The only socket_type defined is SOCK_RAW, other
+socket_types can be used for future extensions. A socket cannot be used to send
+or receive data until it gets connected (using the "connect" call). The
+protocol argument defines the policy used by the socket. Protocol IPN_BROADCAST
+(1) is the basic policy: a packet is sent to all the receipients but the sender
+itself. The policy IPN_ANY (0) can be used to connect or bind a pre-existing
+IPN network regardless of the policy used. (2 will be IPN_VDESWITCH and 3
+IPN_VDESWITCHL3).
+
+The address format is the same of PF_UNIX (a.k.a PF_LOCAL), see unix(7) manual.
+
+   int bind(int sockfd, const struct sockaddr *my_addr, socklen_t addrlen);
+
+This call creates an IPN network if it does not exist, or join an existing
+network (just for management) if it already exists. The policy of the network
+must be consistent with the protocol argument of the "socket" call. A new
+network has the policy defined for the socket. "bind" or "connect" operations
+on existing networks fail if the policy of the socket is neither IPN_ANY nor
+the same of the network. (A network should not be created by a IPN_ANY socket).
+An IPN network appears in the file system as a unix socket. The execution
+permission (x) on this file is required for "bind' to succeed (otherwise -EPERM
+is returned). Similarly the read/write permissions (rw) permits the "connect"
+operation for reading (receiving) or writing (sending) packets respectively.
+When a socket is bound (but not connected) to a IPN network the process does
+not receive or send any data but it can call "ioctl" or "setsockopt" to
+configure the network.
+
+  int connect(int sockfd, const struct sockaddr *serv_addr, socklen_t addrlen);
+
+This call connects a socket to an existing IPN network. The socket can be
+already bound (through the "bind" call) or unbound. Unbound connected sockets
+receive and send data but they cannot configure the network. The read or write
+permission on the socket (rw) is required to "connect" the channel and
+read/write respectively. When "connect" succeeds and provided the socket has
+appropriate permissions, the process can sends packets and receives all the
+packets sent by other processes and delivered to it by the network policy. The
+socket can receive data at any time (like a network interface) so the process
+must be able to handle incoming data (using select/poll or multithreading).
+Obviously higher lever protocols can also prevent the reception of unexpected
+messages by design. It is the case of networks used with with exactly one
+sender, all the other processes can simply receive the data and the sender will
+never receive any packet. It is also possible to have sockets with different
+roles assigning reading permission to some and writing permissions to others.
+If data overrun occurs there can be data loss or the sender can be blocked
+depending on the policy of the socket (LOSSY or LOSSLESS, see over). Bind must
+be called before connect. The correct sequences are: socket+bind: just for
+management, socket+bind+connect: management and communication. socket+connect:
+communication without management).
+
+The calls "accept" and "listen" are not defined for AF_IPN, as there is not any
+server. All the communication takes place among peers.
+
+Data can be sent and received using read, write, send, recv, sendto, recvfrom, sendmsg, recvmsg.
+
+Socket options and flags.
+-------------------------
+
+These options can be set by getsockopt and setsockopt.
+
+There are two different kinds of options: network options and node options. The
+formers define the structure of the network and must be set prior to bind. It
+is not currently possible to change this flag of an existing network. When a
+socket is bound and/or connected to an existing network getsockopt gives the
+current value of the options. Node options define parameters of the node. These
+must be set prior to connect.  
+
+***Network Options (These options can be set prior to bind/connec
+
+IPN_SO_FLAGS: This tag permits to set/get the network flags.
+
+IPN_FLAG_LOSSLESS: this flag defines the behavior in case of network
+overloading or data overrun, i.e. when some process are too slow in consuming
+the packets for the network buffers. When the network is LOSSY (the flag is
+cleared) packets get dropped in case of buffer overflow. A LOSSLESS (flag set)
+IPN network blocks the sender if the buffer is full. LOSSY is the default
+behavior. 
+
+IPN_SO_NUMNODES: max number of connected sockets (default value 32)
+
+IPN_SO_MTU: maximum transfer unit: maximum size of packets (default value 1514,
+Ethernet frame, including VLAN).
+
+IPN_SO_MSGPOOLSIZE: size of the buffer (#of pending packets, default value 8).
+This option has two different meanings depending on the LOSSY/LOSSLESS behavior
+of the network. For LOSSY networks, this is the maximum number of pending
+packets of each node. For LOSSLESS network this is the global number of the
+pending packets in the network. When the same packet is sent to many
+destinations it is counted just once.
+
+IPN_SO_MODE: this option specifies the permission to use when the socket gets
+created on the file system. It is modified by the process' umask in the usual
+way. The created socket permission are (mode & ~umask).  
+
+***Network Options (Options for bound/connected sockets)
+
+IPN_SO_CHANGE_NUMNODES: (runtime) change of the number of ipn network ports. 
+
+***Node Options
+
+IPN_SO_PORT: (default value IPN_PORTNO_ANY) This option specify the port number
+where the socket must be connected. When IPN_PORTNO_ANY the port number is
+decided by the service. There can be network services where different ports
+have different definitions (e.g. different VLANs for ports of virtual Ethernet
+switches).
+
+IPN_SO_DESCR: This is the description of the node. It is a string, having
+maxlength IPN_DESCRLEN. It is just used by debugging tools.  
+
+IPN_SO_HANDLE_OOB: The node is able to manage Out Of Band protocol messages
+
+IPN	_SO_WANT_OOB_NUMNODES: The socket wants OOB messages to notify the change
+of #writers #readers (requires IPN_SO_HANDLE_OOB) 
+
+TAP and GRAB nodes for IPN networks
+-----------------------------------
+
+It is possible to connect IPN sockets to virtual and real network interfaces
+using specific ioctl and provided the user has the permission to configure the
+network (e.g. the CAP_NET_ADMIN Posix capability). A virtual interface
+connected to an IPN network is similar to a tap interface (provided by the
+tuntap module). A tap interface appears as an ethernet interface to the hosting
+operating system, all the packets sent and received through the tap interface
+get received and sent by the application which created the tap interface. IPN
+virtual network interface appears in the same way but the packets are received
+and sent through the IPN network and delivered consistently with the policy
+(BROADCAST acts as a basic HUB for the connected processes). It is also
+possible to *grab* a real interface. In this case the closest example is the
+Linux kernel ethernet bridge. When a real interface is connected to a IPN all
+the packets received from the real network are injected also into the IPN and
+all the packets sent by the IPN through the real network 'port' get sent on the
+real network.
+
+ioctl is used for creation or control of TAP or GRAB interfaces.
+
+    int ioctl(int d, int request, .../* arg */);
+
+A list of the request values currently supported follows.
+
+IPN_CONN_NETDEV: (struct ifreq *arg). This call creates a TAP interface or
+implements a GRAB on an existing interface and connects it to a bound IPN
+socket. The field ifr_flags can be IPN_NODEFLAG_TAP for a TAP interface,
+IPN_NODEFLAG_GRAB to grab an existing interface. The field ifr_name is the
+desired name for the new TAP interface or is the name of the interface to grab
+(e.g. eth0). For TAP interfaces, ifr_name can be an empty string. The interface
+in this latter case is named ipn followed by a number (e.g. ipn0, ipn1, ...).
+This ioctl must be used on a bound but unconnected socket. When the call
+succeeds, the socket gets the connected status, but the packets are sent and
+received through the interface. Persistence apply only to interface nodes (TAP
+or GRAB). 
+
+IPN_SETPERSIST (int arg). If (arg != 0) it gives the interface the persistent
+status: the network interface survives and stay connected to the IPN network
+when the socket is closed. When (arg == 0) the standard behavior is resumed:
+the interface is deleted or the grabbing is terminated when the socket is
+closed. 
+
+IPN_JOIN_NETDEV: (struct ifreq *arg). This call reconnects a socket to an
+existing persistent node. The interface can be defined either by name
+(ifr_name) or by index (ifr_index). If there is already a socket controlling
+the interface this call fails (EADDRNOTAVAIL). 
+
+There are also some ioctl that can be used by a sysadm to give/clear
+persistence on existing IPN interfaces. These calls apply to unbound sockets.
+
+IPN_SETPERSIST_NETDEV: (struct ifreq *arg). This call sets the persistence
+status of an IPN interface. The interface can be defined either by name
+(ifr_name) or by index (ifr_index). 
+
+IPN_CLRPERSIST_NETDEV: (struct ifreq *arg). This call clears the persistence
+status of an IPN interface. The interface is specified as in the opposite call
+above. The interface is deleted (TAP) or the grabbing is terminated when the
+socket is closed, or immediately if the interface is not controlled by a
+socket. If the IPN network had the interface as its sole node, the IPN network
+is terminated, too. 
+
+When unloading the ipn kernel module, all the persistent flags of interfaces
+are cleared.  
+
+Related Work.
+-------------
+
+IPN is able to give a unifying solution to several problems and creates new
+opportunities for applications. 
+
+Several existing tools can be implemented using IPN sockets:
+
+    * VDE. Level 2 service implements a VDE switch in the kernel, providing a
+    considerable speedup.  
+    * Tap (tuntap) networking for virtual machines
+    * Kernel ethernet bridge
+    * All the applications which need multicasting of data streams, like tee 
+
+A continuous stream of data (like audio/video/midi etc) can be sent on an IPN
+network and several application can receive the broadcast just by joining the
+channel.
+
+It is possible to write programs that forward packets between different IPN
+networks running on the same or on different systems extending the IPN in the
+same way as cables extend ethernet networks connecting switches or hubs
+together. (VDE cables are examples of such a kind of programs).
+
+IPN interface to protocol modules
+---------------------------------
+
+struct ipn_protocol {
+  int refcnt;
+  int (*ipn_p_newport)(struct ipn_node *newport);
+  int (*ipn_p_handlemsg)(struct ipn_node *from,struct msgpool_item *msgitem, int depth);
+  void (*ipn_p_delport)(struct ipn_node *oldport);
+  void (*ipn_p_postnewport)(struct ipn_node *newport);
+  void (*ipn_p_predelport)(struct ipn_node *oldport);
+  int (*ipn_p_newnet)(struct ipn_network *newnet);
+	int (*ipn_p_resizenet)(struct ipn_network *net,int oldsize,int newsize);
+  void (*ipn_p_delnet)(struct ipn_network *oldnet);
+  int (*ipn_p_setsockopt)(struct ipn_node *port,int optname,
+      char __user *optval, int optlen);
+  int (*ipn_p_getsockopt)(struct ipn_node *port,int optname,
+      char __user *optval, int *optlen);
+  int (*ipn_p_ioctl)(struct ipn_node *port,unsigned int request,
+      unsigned long arg);
+};
+
+int ipn_proto_register(int protocol,struct ipn_protocol *ipn_service);
+int ipn_proto_deregister(int protocol);
+
+void ipn_proto_sendmsg(struct ipn_node *to, struct msgpool_item *msg, int depth);
+
+
+A protocol (sub) module must define its own ipn_protocol structure (maybe a
+global static variable).
+
+ipn_proto_register must be called in the module init to register the protocol
+to the IPN core module. ipn_proto_deregister must be called in the destructor
+of the module. It fails if there are already running networks based on this
+protocol.
+
+Only two fields must be initialized in any case: ipn_p_newport and
+ipn_p_handlemsg.
+
+ipn_p_newport is the new network node notification. The return value is the
+port number of the new node. This call can be used to allocate and set private
+data used by the protocol (the field proto_private of the struct ipn_node has
+been defined for this purpose).
+
+ipn_p_handlemsg is the notification of a message that must be dispatched. This
+function should call ipn_proto_sendmsg for each recipient. It is possible for
+the protocol to change the message (provided the global length of the packet
+does not exceed the MTU of the network). Depth is for loop control. Two IPN can
+be interconnected by kernel cables (not implemented yet). Cycles of cables
+would generate infinite loops of packets. After a pre-defined number of hops
+the packet gets dropped (it is like EMLINK for symbolic links). Depth value
+must be copied to all ipn_proto_sendmsg calls. Usually the handlemsg function
+has the following structure:
+
+static int ipn_xxxxx_handlemsg(struct ipn_node *from, struct msgpool_item *msgitem, int depth)
+{
+ /* compute the set of receipients */
+ for (/*each receipient "to"*/)
+   ipn_proto_sendmsg(to,msgitem,depth);
+}
+
+It is also possible to send different packets to different recipients.
+
+struct msgpool_item *newitem=ipn_msgpool_alloc(from->ipn);
+/* create a new contents for the packet by filling in newitem->len and newitem->data */
+ipn_proto_sendmsg(recipient1,newitem,depth);
+ipn_proto_sendmsg(recipient2,newitem,depth);
+....
+ipn_msgpool_put(newitem);
+
+(please remember to call ipn_msgpool_put after the sendmsg of packets allocated
+by the protocol submodule).
+
+ipn_p_delport is used to deallocate port related data structures.
+
+ipn_p_postnewport and ipn_p_predelport are used to notify new nodes or deleted
+nodes. newport and delport get called before activating the port and after
+disactivating it respectively, therefore it is not possible to use the new port
+or deleted port to signal the change on the net itself. ipn_p_postnewport and
+ipn_p_predelport get called just after the activation and just before the
+deactivation thus the protocols can already send packets on the network.
+
+ipn_p_newnet and ipn_p_delnet notify the creation/deletion of a IPN network
+using the given protocol.
+
+ipn_p_resizenet notifies a number of ports change
+
+ipn_p_setsockopt and ipn_p_getsockopt can be used to provide specific socket
+options.
+
+ipn_p_ioctl protocols can implement also specific ioctl services.

+	  Inter Process Networking socket are similar to Unix sockets but
+	  they support peer-to-peer, one-to-many and many-to-many communication
+	  among processes. 
+	  Sub-Modules can be loaded to provide dispatching protocols.
+	  This service include the IPN_BROADCST policy: all the messages get

+
+	  To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
+	  called ipn.  
+
+	  If unsure, say 'N'.
