Subject: [REVIEW][PATCH 4/6] fs: Allow superblock owner to access do_remount_sb()
Date: Wed, 23 May 2018 18:25:36 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180523232538.4880-4-ebiederm@xmission.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <87o9h6554f.fsf@xmission.com>

Superblock level remounts are currently restricted to global
CAP_SYS_ADMIN, as is the path for changing the root mount to
read only on umount. Loosen both of these permission checks to
also allow CAP_SYS_ADMIN in any namespace which is privileged
towards the userns which originally mounted the filesystem.
