Subject: [PATCH] ovl: fix missing revert_creds() on error path
Date: Tue, 23 Mar 2021 16:19:35 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <YFnq5wHUQgnw4Rga@mwanda> (raw)

Smatch complains about missing that the ovl_override_creds() doesn't
have a matching revert_creds() if the dentry is disconnected.  Fix this
by moving the ovl_override_creds() until after the disconnected check.

Fixes: aa3ff3c152ff ("ovl: copy up of disconnected dentries")
