Commit Message

Christian Brauner Dec. 3, 2020, 11:57 p.m. UTC
The various vfs_*() helpers are called by filesystems or by the vfs
itself to perform core operations create, link, mkdir, mknod, rename,
rmdir, tmpfile and unlink. Enable them to handle idmapped mounts. If the
inode is accessed through an idmapped mount it is mapped according to
the mount's user namespace. Afterwards the checks and operations are
identical to non-idmapped mounts. If the initial user namespace is
passed nothing changes so non-idmapped mounts will see identical
behavior as before.

/* v2 */
- Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>:
  - Don't pollute the vfs with additional helpers simply extend the existing
    helpers with an additional argument and switch all callers.

/* v3 */
unchanged

/* v4 */
- Serge Hallyn <serge@hallyn.com>:
  - Use "mnt_userns" to refer to a vfsmount's userns everywhere to make
    terminology consistent.
