Subject: [PATCH 00/12] ceph: support idmapped mounts
Date: Tue,  4 Jan 2022 15:04:02 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Christian Brauner <>

Hey everyone,

This patch series enables cephfs to support idmapped mounts, i.e. the
ability to alter ownership information on a per-mount basis.

Container managers such as LXD support sharaing data via cephfs between
the host and unprivileged containers and between unprivileged containers.
They may all use different idmappings. Idmapped mounts can be used to
create mounts with the idmapping used for the container (or a different
one specific to the use-case).

There are in fact more use-cases such as remapping ownership for
mountpoints on the host itself to grant or restrict access to different
users or to make it possible to enforce that programs running as root
will write with a non-zero {g,u}id to disk.

The patch series is simple overall and few changes are needed to cephfs.
There is one cephfs specific issue that I would like to discuss and
solve which I explain in detail in:

[PATCH 02/12] ceph: handle idmapped mounts in create_request_message()

It has to do with how to handle mds serves which have id-based access
restrictions configured. I would ask you to please take a look at the
explanation in the aforementioned patch.

The patch series passes the vfs and idmapped mount testsuite as part of
xfstests. To run it you will need a config like:

export FSTYP=ceph
export TEST_DIR=/mnt/test
export TEST_DEV=
export TEST_FS_MOUNT_OPTS="-o name=admin,secret=$password

and then simply call

sudo ./check -g idmapped

The patch series is on top of my patches scheduled for v5.17. The
easiest way is to either fetch the branch (fs.idmapped.ceph.v1) or the
tag (tag.fs.idmapped.ceph.v1):

git fetch git:// fs.idmapped.ceph.v1
git fetch git:// tag.fs.idmapped.ceph.v1
