Hi all,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/file.c

between commit:

  d46b7cd68336 ("ovl: plumb through flush method")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  ae7db6c8bc98 ("ovl: remove unneeded ioctls")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

FWIW, see vfs.git#work.open2 for part of that program.  I have not pulled
the overlayfs stuff in, but doing the rest based at circa e9cf4c40af4c
("fold put_filp() into fput()") is trivial.  Remains to be done out of the
above:
 	* add static __alloc_file(cred), which would be basically
alloc_empty_file() sans nr_files-related parts.  Make alloc_empty_file()
call it for actual allocation.
 	* in internal.h, static inline alloc_empty_file_noaccount(cred) would
use __alloc_file() and set FMODE_NOACCOUNT in case of success.
	* path_open() loses its 'account' argument - it's always false.
Uses alloc_empty_file_noaccount() to allocate the sucker.  And for fsck
sake, pass it the creds you want to use rather than playing that kind of
games with override/revert.
	* (after the overlayfs changes to vfs_open()) vfs_open() goes away,
expanded into callers.

Stuff currently in work.open2:

Preparatory fixes (this cycle fodder):
      drm_mode_create_lease_ioctl(): fix open-coded filp_clone_open()
      cxl_getfile(): fix double-iput() on alloc_file() failures
      ocxlflash_getfile(): fix double-iput() on alloc_file() failures
More preparatory massage:
      make get_empty_filp() to call file_free_rcu() directly
      fold security_file_free() into file_free()
      turn filp_clone_open() into inline wrapper for dentry_open()
      create_pipe_files(): use fput() if allocation of the second file fails
      make sure do_dentry_open() won't return positive as an error
Providing the right ->f_cred:
      pass creds to get_empty_filp(), make sure dentry_open() passes the right creds
      get rid of cred argument of vfs_open() and do_dentry_open()
      security_file_open(): lose cred argument
      ->file_open(): lose cred argument
Mirror the "do we need fput() or do we need put_filp()" in ->f_mode:
      introduce FMODE_OPENED
      fold put_filp() into fput()
At that point we can start simplifying open-related paths, now that
cleanups are a lot more uniform:
      lift fput() on late failures into path_openat()
      now we can fold open_check_o_direct() into do_dentry_open()
      switch all remaining checks for FILE_OPENED to FMODE_OPENED
Half of the reasons for ->atomic_open() 'opened' argument is gone, let's deal with
the rest:
      introduce FMODE_CREATED and switch to it
      IMA: don't propagate opened through the entire thing
      getting rid of 'opened' argument of ->atomic_open() - step 1
      getting rid of 'opened' argument of ->atomic_open() - part 2
      get rid of 'opened' argument of ->atomic_open() - part 3
      get rid of 'opened' in path_openat() and the helpers downstream
      ->atomic_open(): return 0 in all success cases
      document ->atomic_open() changes
      switch atomic_open() and lookup_open() to returning 0 in all success cases
      kill FILE_{CREATED,OPENED}
At that point we've got _much_ simpler ->atomic_open() calling conventions as well
as the code using it.  Next part - alloc_file() calling conventions:
      new wrapper: alloc_file_pseudo()
      __shmem_file_setup(): reorder allocations
      ... and switch shmem_file_setup() to alloc_file_pseudo()
      cxl_getfile(): switch to alloc_file_pseudo()
      ocxlflash_getfile(): switch to alloc_file_pseudo()
      hugetlb_file_setup(): switch to alloc_file_pseudo()
      anon_inode_getfile(): switch to alloc_file_pseudo()
      create_pipe_files(): switch the first allocation to alloc_file_pseudo()
      new helper: alloc_file_clone()
      do_shmat(): grab shp->shm_file earlier, switch to alloc_file_clone()
      make alloc_file() static
      document alloc_file() changes
And cleanups in pathname-resolving loops from better calling conventions
for path_init()/link_path_walk():
      make path_init() unconditionally paired with terminate_walk()
      allow link_path_walk() to take ERR_PTR()
      few more cleanups of link_path_walk() callers

IMO the diffstat is not too bad -

First of all, I'm still not at all convinced that this "noaccount" thing is
sane, especially since path_open() is exported.  But that aside, __get_empty_filp()
needs to be shot, just for the name and calling conventions alone.

It gets a bullshit argument (bool account) *AND* does not get the argument it
does need.  Note that the first thing get_empty_filp() (now __get...) does
is
        const struct cred *cred = current_cred();
followed by
        f->f_cred = get_cred(cred);

Now look at path_open().  What happens to the cred argument it gets?  It goes
to do_dentry_open(), where it gets passed to security_file_open() and not
used by anything else.  In security_file_open() we have it passed to
	ret = call_int_hook(file_open, 0, file, cred);
and there are three instances of ->file_open() - apparmor, selinux and tomoyo.
The last one ignores cred entirely; the other two do checks based on it,
but *all* of them leave file->f_cred as it was.

This is not a new crap.  It had been inherited from dentry_open(), which got it
from "CRED: Pass credentials through dentry_open()" back in 2008.  Note that
	* among the callers of dentry_open() (20) and vfs_open() (2 more)
only these
fs/cachefiles/rdwr.c:913:       file = dentry_open(&path, O_RDWR | O_LARGEFILE, cache->cache_cred);
security/apparmor/file.c:695:   devnull = dentry_open(&aa_null, O_RDWR, cred);
security/selinux/hooks.c:2628:  devnull = dentry_open(&selinux_null, O_RDWR, cred);
get cred != current_cred().  Which helps masking the issue, but makes the
decision to add that argument (instead of a separate helper) rather dubious.
	* overlayfs itself appears to *have* run into the problem, judging
by
        old_cred = ovl_override_creds(inode->i_sb);
        realfile = path_open(&file->f_path, file->f_flags | O_NOATIME,
                             realinode, current_cred(), false);
        revert_creds(old_cred);
in there.

Folks, if you have to go to that kind of contortions, why not do it right?
	* add static __alloc_file(cred), which would get cred pointer (and not
use current_cred() internally), allocated a file (without bothering with
nr_files) and returned it
	* have alloc_empty_file(cred) that would do the song and dance
with nr_files (and used __alloc_file() internally).
	* use that as a replacement for get_empty_filp() - path_openat() would
*probably* use current_cred() for argument, alloc_file() definitely would and
dentry_open() would pass its cred argument.
	* in internal.h, static inline alloc_empty_file_noaccount(cred) would
use __alloc_file() and set FMODE_NOACCOUNT in case of success.
	* do_dentry_open() loses the fucking cred argument - it should be in
file->f_cred.
	* vfs_open() goes away - in your branch it's absolutely pointless.
	* path_open() loses its 'account' argument - it's always false.
Uses alloc_empty_file_noaccount() to allocate the sucker.  And for fsck
sake, pass it the creds you want to use rather than playing that kind of
games with override/revert.

Hi all,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  include/linux/fs.h

between commit:

  5c299f73cc9e ("vfs: add path_open()")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  bfd4fa6990f0 ("turn filp_clone_open() into inline wrapper for dentry_open()")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  5f0cc0005d2e ("introduce FMODE_OPENED")
  13fcca01ef86 ("now we can fold open_check_o_direct() into do_dentry_open()")
  7dfb1eeaea37 ("introduce FMODE_CREATED and switch to it")

from the vfs tree.

I *think* I got this right, but please check.  Is there some way that
these overlayfs commits can be integrated into the vfs tree development
(or vice versa).  Also, I would expect to see *some* Reviewed-by or
Acked-by lines in all this work ...

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

The number of potential users of these flags is pretty low, so I think
we can try and remove them and hope nothing breaks.

Probably best left after the dust settles.

Ummm...  Can MS_NOREMOTELOCK be removed?  I know it's listed in the internal
flags section, but all of these have been exposed to userspace for over a
year.  Ideally, I'd remove all of these from UAPI, but can anyone guarantee

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  include/uapi/linux/fs.h

between commit:

  1d91ca426d8d ("Partially revert "locks: fix file locking on overlayfs"")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  28514d1edad4 ("vfs: Suppress MS_* flag defs within the kernel unless explicitly enabled")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (I used the vfs tree version of the file and added the
following merge fix patch) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got conflicts in:

  include/linux/fs.h

between commit:

  e8f97b0a52b3 ("vfs: optionally don't account file in nr_files")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating

Hi all,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/read_write.c

between commit:

  63ea46a359b2 ("vfs: dedupe: extract helper for a single dedup")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  227627114799 ("fs: avoid fdput() after failed fdget() in vfs_dedupe_file_range()")

from the vfs tree.

I can't see how to easily fix up this conflict, so I effectively dropped
the vfs tree change.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

This is now a conflict between the overlayfs tree and Linus' tree.

I fixed up the "tmp" here ... it should have been "dentry".

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/dcache.c

between commit:

  f9c34674bc60 ("vfs: factor out helpers d_instantiate_anon() and d_alloc_anon()")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  f1ee616214cb ("VFS: don't keep disconnected dentries on d_anon")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/super.c

between commits:

  7c84d842e11e ("ovl: reduce the number of arguments for ovl_workdir_create()")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  c2c6773f9942 ("VFS: Roll out mount flag differentiation (MS_* -> SB_*) generally")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This

* linux-next: manual merge of the vfs tree with the overlayfs tree

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/copy_up.c

between commit:

  4a756233184d ("Revert "ovl: Warn on copy up if a process has a R/O fd open to the lower file"")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  450630975da9 ("don't open-code file_inode()")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (the former removed the code updated by the latter) and
can carry the fix as necessary. This is now fixed as far as linux-next
is concerned, but any non trivial conflicts should be mentioned to your
upstream maintainer when your tree is submitted for merging.  You may
also want to consider cooperating with the maintainer of the conflicting
tree to minimise any particularly complex conflicts.

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/dir.c

between commits:

  659f95a46dd0 ("ovl: add ovl_dentry_is_whiteout()")
  ee2e4303d554 ("ovl: opaque cleanup")
  f7cd4e7b2743 ("ovl: clean up kstat usage")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  718324db4435 ("overlayfs: stop abusing kstat")

from the vfs tree.

It looks like commits f7cd4e7b2743 and 718324db4435 are essentially the
smae change (with some white space differences).

I fixed it up (I just took bits from each of teh above) and can carry
the fix as necessary. This is now fixed as far as linux-next is
concerned, but any non trivial conflicts should be mentioned to your
upstream maintainer when your tree is submitted for merging.  You may
also want to consider cooperating with the maintainer of the
conflicting tree to minimise any particularly complex conflicts.

Miklos, that overlayfs tree commit f7cd4e7b2743 has no Signed-off-by
from Al as its Author :-(

FWIW, if Miklos could pick that one-liner into overlayfs tree, I'd be only
happy to drop it from that queue.

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/super.c

between commit:

  e2475b7276d0 ("ovl: check mounter creds on underlying lookup")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  b3ac9a85b31c ("qstr: constify instances in overlayfs")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary. This
is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any non trivial
conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer when your tree
is submitted for merging.  You may also want to consider cooperating
with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any particularly
complex conflicts.

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/super.c

between commit:

  420598d5bf9c ("ovl: ignore permissions on underlying lookup")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  b9e1d435fdf4 ("ovl_lookup_real(): use lookup_one_len_unlocked()")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (I abitrarily chose the overlayfs version (using
lookup_hash() instead of lookup_one_len_unlocked())) and can carry the
fix as necessary. This is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned,
but any non trivial conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream
maintainer when your tree is submitted for merging.  You may also want
to consider cooperating with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to
minimise any particularly complex conflicts.

No, here it's not an optimization:

    "More specifically using lookup_one_len() causes a problem when the lower
    directory lacks search permission for a specific user while the upper
    directory does have search permission.  Since lookups are cached, this
    causes inconsistency in behavior: success depends on who did the first
    lookup."

Thanks,
Miklos

PS: if anybody has a better name for lookup_one_len_unlocked(), I'll gladly
rename it; the thing hadn't been in the kernel for too long and the name is
somewhat confusing.  It's an equivalent of
	inode_lock()
	lookup_one_len()
	inode_unlock()
except that it avoids taking the lock when it's not needed.

Should use lookup_one_len_unlocked(), actually.  lookup_hash() is
a microoptimization, losing a lot more on excessive i_mutex contention.
Either variant works, though.

Hi Al,

Today's linux-next merge of the vfs tree got a conflict in:

  fs/overlayfs/super.c

between commit:

  d478d6a8b8b7 ("ovl: ignore permissions on underlying lookup")

from the overlayfs tree and commit:

  5cf3e7fecb43 ("ovl_lookup_real(): use lookup_one_len_unlocked()")

from the vfs tree.

I fixed it up (I used the overlayfs version, since I don't know the
locking consequences of teh change from lookup_one_len() to lookup_hash())
and can carry the fix as necessary. This is now fixed as far as linux-next
is concerned, but any non trivial conflicts should be mentioned to your
upstream maintainer when your tree is submitted for merging.  You may
also want to consider cooperating with the maintainer of the conflicting
tree to minimise any particularly complex conflicts.
