    Subject[46/68] eCryptfs: Copy up lower inode attrs in getattr
    2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Tyler Hicks <>

    commit 55f9cf6bbaa682958a7dd2755f883b768270c3ce upstream.

    The lower filesystem may do some type of inode revalidation during a
    getattr call. eCryptfs should take advantage of that by copying the
    lower inode attributes to the eCryptfs inode after a call to
    vfs_getattr() on the lower inode.

    I originally wrote this fix while working on eCryptfs on nfsv3 support,
    but discovered it also fixed an eCryptfs on ext4 nanosecond timestamp
    bug that was reported.
