      vfs: remove stale comment in inode_operations · c8fffa64
      Ross Zwisler authored
      The big warning comment that is currently at the end of struct
      inode_operations was added as part of this commit:
      4aa7c634 ("vfs: add i_op->dentry_open()")
      It was added to warn people not to use the newly added 'dentry_open'
      function pointer.
      This function pointer was removed as part of this commit:
      4bacc9c9 ("overlayfs: Make f_path always point to the overlay and
      		f_inode to the underlay")
      The comment was left behind and now refers to nothing, so remove it.

      vfs: remove unused wrapper block_page_mkwrite() · 5c500029
      Ross Zwisler authored
      The function currently called "__block_page_mkwrite()" used to be called
      "block_page_mkwrite()" until a wrapper for this function was added by:
      commit 24da4fab ("vfs: Create __block_page_mkwrite() helper passing
      	error values back")
      This wrapper, the current "block_page_mkwrite()", is currently unused.
      __block_page_mkwrite() is used directly by ext4, nilfs2 and xfs.
      Remove the unused wrapper, rename __block_page_mkwrite() back to
      block_page_mkwrite() and update the comment above block_page_mkwrite().

      fs/pipe.c: return error code rather than 0 in pipe_write() · 6ae08069
      Eric Biggers authored
      pipe_write() would return 0 if it failed to merge the beginning of the
      data to write with the last, partially filled pipe buffer.  It should
      return an error code instead.  Userspace programs could be confused by
      write() returning 0 when called with a nonzero 'count'.
      The EFAULT error case was a regression from f0d1bec9 ("new helper:
      copy_page_from_iter()"), while the ops->confirm() error case was a much
      older bug.
      Test program:
      	#include <assert.h>
      	#include <errno.h>
      	#include <unistd.h>
      	int main(void)
      		int fd[2];
      		char data[1] = {0};
      		assert(0 == pipe(fd));
      		assert(1 == write(fd[1], data, 1));
      		/* prior to this patch, write() returned 0 here  */
      		assert(-1 == write(fd[1], NULL, 1));
      		assert(errno == EFAULT);

      fs/pipe.c: preserve alloc_file() error code · e9bb1f9b
      Eric Biggers authored
      If sys_pipe() was unable to allocate a 'struct file', it always failed
      with ENFILE, which means "The number of simultaneously open files in the
      system would exceed a system-imposed limit." However, alloc_file()
      actually returns an ERR_PTR value and might fail with other error codes.
      Currently, in addition to ENFILE, it can fail with ENOMEM, potentially
      when there are few open files in the system.  Update sys_pipe() to
      preserve this error code.
      In a prior submission of a similar patch (1) some concern was raised
      about introducing a new error code for sys_pipe().  However, for most
      system calls, programs cannot assume that new error codes will never be
      introduced.  In addition, ENOMEM was, in fact, already a possible error
      code for sys_pipe(), in the case where the file descriptor table could
      not be expanded due to insufficient memory.

      binfmt_elf: Don't clobber passed executable's file header · b582ef5c
      Maciej W. Rozycki authored
      Do not clobber the buffer space passed from `search_binary_handler' and
      originally preloaded by `prepare_binprm' with the executable's file
      header by overwriting it with its interpreter's file header.  Instead
      keep the buffer space intact and directly use the data structure locally
      allocated for the interpreter's file header, fixing a bug introduced in
      2.1.14 with loadable module support (linux-mips.org commit beb11695
      [Import of Linux/MIPS 2.1.14], predating kernel.org repo's history).
      Adjust the amount of data read from the interpreter's file accordingly.
      This was not an issue before loadable module support, because back then
      `load_elf_binary' was executed only once for a given ELF executable,
      whether the function succeeded or failed.
      With loadable module support supported and enabled, upon a failure of
      `load_elf_binary' -- which may for example be caused by architecture
      code rejecting an executable due to a missing hardware feature requested
      in the file header -- a module load is attempted and then the function
      reexecuted by `search_binary_handler'.  With the executable's file
      header replaced with its interpreter's file header the executable can
      then be erroneously accepted in this subsequent attempt.

      FS-Cache: Handle a write to the page immediately beyond the EOF marker · 102f4d90
      David Howells authored
      Handle a write being requested to the page immediately beyond the EOF
      marker on a cache object.  Currently this gets an assertion failure in
      CacheFiles because the EOF marker is used there to encode information about
      a partial page at the EOF - which could lead to an unknown blank spot in
      the file if we extend the file over it.
      The problem is actually in fscache where we check the index of the page
      being written against store_limit.  store_limit is set to the number of
      pages that we're allowed to store by fscache_set_store_limit() - which
      means it's one more than the index of the last page we're allowed to store.
      The problem is that we permit writing to a page with an index _equal_ to
      the store limit - when we should reject that case.
      Whilst we're at it, change the triggered assertion in CacheFiles to just
      return -ENOBUFS instead.
      The assertion failure looks something like this:
      CacheFiles: Assertion failed
      1000 < 7b1 is false

      debugfs: fix refcount imbalance in start_creating · 0ee9608c
      Daniel Borkmann authored
      In debugfs' start_creating(), we pin the file system to safely access
      its root. When we failed to create a file, we unpin the file system via
      failed_creating() to release the mount count and eventually the reference
      of the vfsmount.
      However, when we run into an error during lookup_one_len() when still
      in start_creating(), we only release the parent's mutex but not so the
      reference on the mount. Looks like it was done in the past, but after
      splitting portions of __create_file() into start_creating() and
      end_creating() via 190afd81 ("debugfs: split the beginning and the
      end of __create_file() off"), this seemed missed. Noticed during code
      Fixes: 190afd81 ("debugfs: split the beginning and the end of __create_file() off")
