Subject[PATCH 20/30] r/o bind mounts: elevate write count for open()s
From
Date

This is the first really tricky patch in the series. It elevates the writer
count on a mount each time a non-special file is opened for write.

We used to do this in may_open(), but Miklos pointed out that __dentry_open()
is used as well to create filps. This will cover even those cases, while a
call in may_open() would not have.

There is also an elevated count around the vfs_create() call in open_namei().
See the comments for more details, but we need this to fix a 'create, remount,
fail r/w open()' race.

Some filesystems forego the use of normal vfs calls to create
struct files. Make sure that these users elevate the mnt
writer count because they will get __fput(), and we need
to make sure they're balanced.
