Subject: [PATCH] fat: Fix using uninitialized fields of fat_inode/fsinfo_inode
Date: Wed, 08 Mar 2017 22:13:19 +0900
Message-ID: <87pohrj4i8.fsf@mail.parknet.co.jp> (raw)


Recently fallocate patch was merged and it uses
MSDOS_I(inode)->mmu_private at fat_evict_inode(). However,
fat_inode/fsinfo_inode that was introduced in past didn't initialize
MSDOS_I(inode) properly.

With those combinations, it became the cause of accessing random entry
in FAT area.
