      fs: push i_mutex and filemap_write_and_wait down into ->fsync() handlers · 02c24a82
      Josef Bacik authored
      Btrfs needs to be able to control how filemap_write_and_wait_range() is called
      in fsync to make it less of a painful operation, so push down taking i_mutex and
      the calling of filemap_write_and_wait() down into the ->fsync() handlers.  Some
      file systems can drop taking the i_mutex altogether it seems, like ext3 and
      ocfs2.  For correctness sake I just pushed everything down in all cases to make
      sure that we keep the current behavior the same for everybody, and then each
      individual fs maintainer can make up their mind about what to do from there.

      kill ->dir_notify() · 6badd79b
      Al Viro authored
      Remove the hopelessly misguided ->dir_notify().  The only instance (cifs)
      has been broken by design from the very beginning; the objects it creates
      are never destroyed, keep references to struct file they can outlive, nothing
      that could possibly evict them exists on close(2) path *and* no locking
      whatsoever is done to prevent races with close(), should the previous, er,
      deficiencies someday be dealt with.

      [PATCH] sanitize ->permission() prototype · e6305c43
      Al Viro authored
      * kill nameidata * argument; map the 3 bits in ->flags anybody cares
        about to new MAY_... ones and pass with the mask.
      * kill redundant gfs2_iop_permission()
      * sanitize ecryptfs_permission()
      * fix remaining places where ->permission() instances might barf on new
        MAY_... found in mask.
      The obvious next target in that direction is permission(9)
      folded fix for nfs_permission() breakage from Miklos Szeredi <>

      [PATCH] fix memory corruption from misinterpreted bad_inode_ops return values · be6aab0e
      Eric Sandeen authored
      CVE-2006-5753 is for a case where an inode can be marked bad, switching
      the ops to bad_inode_ops, which are all connected as:
      static int return_EIO(void)
              return -EIO;
      #define EIO_ERROR ((void *) (return_EIO))
      static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
              .create         = bad_inode_create
      The problem here is that the void cast causes return types to not be
      promoted, and for ops such as listxattr which expect more than 32 bits of
      return value, the 32-bit -EIO is interpreted as a large positive 64-bit
      number, i.e. 0x00000000fffffffa instead of 0xfffffffa.
      This goes particularly badly when the return value is taken as a number of
      bytes to copy into, say, a user's buffer for example...
      I originally had coded up the fix by creating a return_EIO_<TYPE> macro
      for each return type, like this:
      static int return_EIO_int(void)
      	return -EIO;
      #define EIO_ERROR_INT ((void *) (return_EIO_int))
      static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
      	.create		= EIO_ERROR_INT,
      but Al felt that it was probably better to create an EIO-returner for each
      actual op signature.  Since so few ops share a signature, I just went ahead
      & created an EIO function for each individual file & inode op that returns
      a value.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
