[ Upstream commit 72db82115d2bdfbfba8b15a92d91872cfe1b40c6 ]

When a lower file has sync/noatime fileattr flags, the behavior of
overlayfs post copy up is inconsistent.

Immediately after copy up, ovl inode still has the S_SYNC/S_NOATIME
inode flags copied from lower inode, so vfs code still treats the ovl
inode as sync/noatime.  After ovl inode evict or mount cycle,
the ovl inode does not have these inode flags anymore.

To fix this inconsistency, try to copy the fileattr flags on copy up
if the upper fs supports the fileattr_set() method.

This gives consistent behavior post copy up regardless of inode eviction
from cache.

We cannot copy up the immutable/append-only inode flags in a similar
manner, because immutable/append-only inodes cannot be linked and because
overlayfs will not be able to set overlay.* xattr on the upper inodes.

Those flags will be addressed by a followup patch.

[ Upstream commit b71759ef1e1730db81dab98e9dab9455e8c7f5a2 ]

It is possible that a directory tree is shared between multiple overlay
instances as a lower layer.  In this case when one instance executes a file
residing on the lower layer, the other instance denies a truncate(2) call
on this file.

This only happens for truncate(2) and not for open(2) with the O_TRUNC
flag.

Fix this interference and inconsistency by removing the preliminary
i_writecount check before copy-up.

This means that unlike on normal filesystems truncate(argv[0]) will now
succeed.  If this ever causes a regression in a real world use case this
needs to be revisited.

One way to fix this properly would be to keep a correct i_writecount in the
overlay inode, but that is difficult due to memory mapping code only
dealing with the real file/inode.

Sasha,

I do not recommend applying this patch to stable.
The value/risk ratio is not worth it IMO.

I don't know of anyone who ever complained about not copying
the NOATIME/SYNC fileattrs specifically.

This patch is more of a complimentary patch to the IMMUTABLE/
APPEND fileattr patch, which is not appropriate for stable either.

OTOH, ovl-update-5.15 has this patch that was not included in the
AUTOSEL batch, even though it has a Fixes tag, CC stable and
very strong hints in the subject:
52d5a0c6bd8a ("ovl: fix BUG_ON() in may_delete() when called from
ovl_cleanup()")

I suppose AUTOSEL leaves these sorts of patches to Greg's scripts?

Thanks,
Amir.

Thanks! I'll drop it.

That's correct. If it has a stable tag AUTOSEL won't look at it (why
should it? :) ).
