Compile USB Serial Modem Using option.c (Ubuntu on Beagleboard xM)

In ARM Linux, General Linux, Ubuntu on 9 January 2012 with 2 comments 3959 views

Despite possibility to use (1)

or (2) usb-modeswitch, (3) Matthias Urlichs initially wrote option.c driver as a way to insert USB modem as kernel module.

This driver exists because the “normal” serial driver doesn’t work too well
with GSM modems. Issues:
- data loss — one single Receive URB is not nearly enough
- nonstandard flow (Option devices) control
- controlling the baud rate doesn’t make sense

Most modems will be successfully attached with this driver, appearing in one of the typical /dev/ttyUSB0 to /dev/ttyUSB2. The product ID 0x0015 for GSM modem compiled here is a Qualcomm (vendor ID 0x05c6) OEM modem I received from Embest DevKit8500D order. There are more than one form factor when searching for its images on Google. Closest one we have in Indonesia is ADVAN DT8-HT bundled in Telkomsel Flash.

Qualcomm 05c6:0015 from Indonesian operator

I’m compiling it for the Beagleboard xM Rev C running Ubuntu Oneiric (installed in this post). A quick look gives:

The above 0x0015 product ID doesn’t exist inside option.c of linux kernel 3.0.0-12 source. Adding this to series of existing Qualcomm modems gives:

The include also needs usb-wwan.h from that kernel source. Copy them both under /usr/src/linux-headers-3.0.6-x3/drivers/usb/serial/. For other include files, install:

and create this link as root

After removing the old one (pointed to build -> /build/buildd/linux-3.0), create a link inside /lib/modules/3.0.6-x3 named build pointing to:

Modify the original Makefile to contain only rule for option.o

and then build the driver

Copy the build and deploy

Now syslog will show the following lines if the modem is inserted:

After installing KB4586781 on domain controllers (DCs) and read-only domain controllers (RODCs) in your environment, you might encounter Kerberos authentication issues. This is caused by an issue in how CVE-2020-17049 was addressed in these updates. As noted in CVE-2020-17049, there are three registry setting values for PerformTicketSignature to control it, but in the current implementation you might encounter different issues with each setting:
  • Setting the value to 0 might cause authentication issues when using S4U scenarios, such as scheduled tasks, clustering, and services for example line-of-business applications.
  • The default value setting of 1 might cause non-Windows clients authenticating to Windows Domains using Kerberos to experience authentication issues.
    • With setting 1, clients attempting to renew a Kerberos ticket that should be renewable on a DC updated with KB4586781 will fail to renew the Kerberos ticket if it was issued from a DC that has not installed an update released November 11, 2020 or any DC running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 SP2.
    • Going from 0 to 1 might also cause this issue since there can be outstanding Kerberos tickets that are marked renewable, but will not be renewed by updated DCs.
  • With the default value setting of 1, you might also have Cross realm referrals failures on Windows and non-Windows devices for Kerberos referral tickets passing through domain DCs that have not installed an update released November 11, 2020 or any DC running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 SP2. This issue might happen if domain environment is partially updated or contains at least one Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 SP2.
  • Setting the value to 2 is intended for enforcement mode and will create issues in an environment where not all DCs are updated because it will explicitly reject certain types of non-compliant Kerberos tickets. It should also not be used at this time if your environment contains DCs running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 SP2.
Note This issue only affects Windows Servers, Windows 10 devices and applications in enterprise environments.
Affected platforms:
  • Server: Windows Server, version 20H2; Windows Server, version 2004; Windows Server, version 1909; Windows Server, version 1903; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012
Resolution: This issue was resolved in the out-of-band update KB4594440. It is a cumulative update, so you do not need to apply any previous update before installing it. To get the standalone package for KB4594440, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog. You can import this update into Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) manually. See the Microsoft Update Catalog for instructions. Note KB4594440 is not available from Windows Update and will not install automatically.

System and user certificates might be lost when updating a device from Windows 10, version 1809 or later to a later version of Windows 10. Devices will only be impacted if they have already installed any Latest cumulative update (LCU) released September 16, 2020 or later and then proceed to update to a later version of Windows 10 from media or an installation source which does not have an LCU released October 13, 2020 or later integrated. This primarily happens when managed devices are updated using outdated bundles or media through an update management tool such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. This might also happen when using outdated physical media or ISO images that do not have the latest updates integrated.
Note Devices using Windows Update for Business or that connect directly to Windows Update are not impacted. Any device connecting to Windows Update should always receive the latest versions of the feature update, including the latest LCU, without any extra steps.
Workaround: If you have already encountered this issue on your device, you can mitigate it within the uninstall window by going back to your previous version of Windows using the instructions here. The uninstall window might be 10 or 30 days depending on the configuration of your environment and the version you’re updating to. You will then need to update to the later version of Windows 10 after the issue is resolved in your environment. Note Within the uninstall window, you can increase the number of days you have to go back to your previous version of Windows 10 by using the DISM command /Set-OSUninstallWindow. You must make this change before the default uninstall window has lapsed. For more information, see DISM operating system uninstall command-line options.
Affected platforms:
  • Client: Windows 10, version 20H2; Windows 10, version 2004; Windows 10, version 1909; Windows 10, version 1903
  • Server: Windows Server, version 20H2; Windows Server, version 2004; Windows Server, version 1909; Windows Server, version 1903
Resolution: This issue is now resolved when using the latest feature update bundles and refreshed media. Feature update bundles were released November 9, 2020 for Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. Refreshed media was released November 3, 2020 on Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) and Visual Studio Subscriptions (VSS, formerly MSDN Subscriptions). For information on verifying you're using the refreshed media, see How to address feature update refreshes in your environment. If you are using or creating custom media, you will need to include an update released October 13, 2020 or later.
Note If you are updating to Windows 10, version 20H2, this is only resolved with the feature update bundle released November 9, 2020. Refreshed media is not yet available on VLSC or VSS. Refreshed media for VLSC and VSS will be released in the coming weeks to address this issue and another known issue that requires a media refresh. Please check the known issue here for the status of the remaining Windows 10, version 20H2 known issue.
