Subject: Re: [PATCH v6 6/6] blktrace: fix debugfs use after free
Date: Wed, 10 Jun 2020 21:52:13 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200610215213.GH13911@42.do-not-panic.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200610210917.GH11244@42.do-not-panic.com>

So, upon updating the commit log, and moving the empty directory check
into another patch, I realized we might be able to simplify this now even
further still. Patch below. The key of the issue was that the use after free
happens when a recursive removal happens, and then later a specific
dentry removal happens. This happened for make_request block drivers
when using the whole disk, but since we *don't* have any other users of
the directory for the others cases, this in theory shuld not happen for
them either.

I'll try to shoot some bullets at this.
