Subject: [RFC PATCH v4 0/4] fs: add flag to linkat() for replacing destination
Date: Wed, 29 Jan 2020 00:58:30 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <cover.1580251857.git.osandov__34029.5823452593$1580288332$gmane$org@fb.com> (raw)

[Sorry if you got this twice, I botched the Cc's on the previous
 submission.]

Hello,

This series adds an AT_LINK_REPLACE flag to linkat() which allows
atomically replacing the destination if it exists. This is a respin of
an old series [1] that I was convinced to resend due to some recent
interest [2][3].

Patch 1 adds a flags argument to i_ops->link() in preparation. Patch 2
adds the VFS support. Patch 3 fixes an inode leak in btrfs_link(),
included in this series because it conflicts with patch 4. Patch 4 adds
support for AT_LINK_REPLACE to Btrfs.

I've also included a man-page patch (with an example program), an xfs_io
patch, and an fstest.

Some outstanding issues:

- The Btrfs implementation does a d_drop() on the replaced dentry. We
  probably want a d_replace() helper for filesystems to use.
- Should AT_LINK_REPLACE be limited to O_TMPFILE? In my opinion, the
  answer is no. After all, `ln -f` is not that exotic.
- Should AT_LINK_REPLACE guarantee data integrity? Again, I think the
  answer is no. That's more suited to something like Amir's AT_ATOMIC
  proposal [4].

Changes since v3:

- Rebased on v5.5.
- Added patches 1 and 3.
- Incorporated Al's feedback on various error cases in patch 2.
- Renamed the flag to AT_LINK_REPLACE.

Thanks!
