Subject[PATCH][-mm] Generic VFS fallback for security xattrs
From
Date
This patch modifies the VFS setxattr, getxattr, and listxattr code to
fall back to the security module for security xattrs if the filesystem
does not support xattrs natively. This allows security modules to
export the incore inode security label information to userspace even
if the filesystem does not provide xattr storage, and eliminates the
need to individually patch various pseudo filesystem types to provide
such access. The patch removes the existing xattr code from devpts
and tmpfs as it is then no longer needed.

The patch restructures the code flow slightly to reduce duplication
between the normal path and the fallback path, but this should only
have one user-visible side effect - a program may get -EACCES rather
than -EOPNOTSUPP if policy denied access but the filesystem didn't
support the operation anyway. Note that the post_setxattr hook call
is not needed in the fallback case, as the inode_setsecurity hook call
handles the incore inode security state update directly. In contrast,
we do call fsnotify in both cases.

Please include in -mm for wider testing prior to merging in 2.6.14.
