Subject: [PATCH 2/2] ocfs2: Don't clear SGID when inheriting ACLs
Date: Tue,  1 Aug 2017 16:12:52 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

When new directory 'DIR1' is created in a directory 'DIR0' with SGID bit
set, DIR1 is expected to have SGID bit set (and owning group equal to
the owning group of 'DIR0'). However when 'DIR0' also has some default
ACLs that 'DIR1' inherits, setting these ACLs will result in SGID bit on
'DIR1' to get cleared if user is not member of the owning group.

Fix the problem by moving posix_acl_update_mode() out of ocfs2_set_acl()
into ocfs2_iop_set_acl(). That way the function will not be called when
inheriting ACLs which is what we want as it prevents SGID bit clearing
and the mode has been properly set by posix_acl_create() anyway. Also
posix_acl_chmod() that is calling ocfs2_set_acl() takes care of updating
mode itself.
