SubjectMounting tmpfs with symbolic gid doesn't work
Hi,

Mounting tmpfs with gid=<symbolic-group> doesn't work on recent kernels
any more; the same with uid=<symbolic-username> works fine:

rsc@isonoe:~$ mkdir troet
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo mount -t tmpfs -ogid=rsc none troet/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on none,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
rsc@isonoe:~/svn/ptxdist-trunk$ dmesg | tail -n 1
tmpfs: Bad value 'rsc' for mount option 'gid'
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo mount -t tmpfs -ogid=1006 none troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ mount | grep troet
none on /home/rsc/troet type tmpfs (rw,gid=1006)
rsc@isonoe:~$ ls -ld troet/
drwxrwxrwt 2 root 1006 40 Jan 11 12:32 troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo umount troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo mount -t tmpfs -ouid=1006 none troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo umount troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo mount -t tmpfs -ouid=rsc none troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ ls -ld troet/
drwxrwxrwt 2 rsc root 40 Jan 11 12:33 troet/
rsc@isonoe:~$ sudo umount troet/
Tested with 2.6.19-rc6, the behaviour seems to have worked until at
least 2.6.16. Does anyone have an idea?
