We must use the i_mutex to protect permission changes,
which means we need to take it when we write to a file with
the setuid or setgid bit set (as this removes those bits).

LU-8025 attempted to use IS_NOSEC to check for this case,
but did not actually add support for the S_NOSEC flag to

S_NOSEC was added in upstream kernel commit:
But a key change requiring parallel filesystems to opt in
with a superblock flag was added in:

This patch adds the required support.

Specifically, Lustre should set S_NOSEC correctly when an
inode is created (ll_iget), but only for new inodes.
Setting it for existing inodes requires taking the i_mutex,
creating an unacceptable metadata performance impact in the
lookup code.

Existing inodes get S_NOSEC set either by a setattr call
(see below), or by the first writer to write to the node,
in file_remove_privs/file_remove_suid.  So it's OK not to
set S_NOSEC on all inodes in ll_iget.

Also, Lustre must clear S_NOSEC when it gets a metadata
update because another node could have changed permissions.
i_flags is already cleared in ll_update_inode, but we would
prefer to have S_NOSEC set whenever possible, so we want to
re-do the check after the update.

This requires holding the i_mutex to avoid a check/set race
with permissions changes.

We cannot easily take the i_mutex in ll_update_inode (it is
called from too many places, some of which already hold the

It is acceptable to sometimes not have S_NOSEC set (since
occasionally taking the i_mutex when not needed is OK), so
we look at getting it set most of the time.

It looks like the primary concern is ll_md_setattr.  The
caller (ll_setattr_raw) takes the i_mutex before returning,
so we do the relevant call there.

This opens a window during which S_NOSEC is not set, but
again, this merely creates a situation where we take the
i_mutex unnecessarily, and should be rare in practice.

Testing with multiple writers shows that we only very
rarely attempt to take the i_mutex, so the performance
impact is minimal.
