Subject: [PATCH 05/12] f*xattr: allow O_PATH descriptors
Date: Tue,  5 May 2020 11:59:08 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200505095915.11275-6-mszeredi@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200505095915.11275-1-mszeredi@redhat.com>

This allows xattr ops on symlink/special files referenced by an O_PATH
descriptor without having to play games with /proc/self/fd/NN (which
doesn't work for symlinks anyway).

This capability is the same as would be given by introducing ...at()
variants with an AT_EMPTY_PATH argument.  Looking at getattr/setattr type
syscalls, this is allowed for fstatat() and fchownat(), but not for
fchmodat() and utimensat().  What's the logic?

While this carries a minute risk of someone relying on the property of
xattr syscalls rejecting O_PATH descriptors, it saves the trouble of
introducing another set of syscalls.

Only file->f_path and file->f_inode are accessed in these functions.

Current versions return EBADF, hence easy to detect the presense of this
feature and fall back in case it's missing.
