Subject[PATCH 25/39] VFS: Split inode_permission() and create path_permission()
Date
Split inode_permission() into inode and file-system-dependent parts.
Create path_permission() to check permission based on the path to the
inode. This is for union mounts, in which an inode can be located on
a read-only lower layer file system but is still writable, since we
will copy it up to the writable top layer file system. So in that
case, we want to ignore MS_RDONLY on the lower layer. To make this
decision, we must know the path (vfsmount, dentry) of both the target
and its parent.
