Subject[patch] remove outdated fs/ChangeLog
Hi Al,

fs/ChangeLog is _very_ outdated. Is the patch below to remove it from
2.4 and 2.5 OK?

-
- * fcntl.c (sys_fcntl): Liberalize security checks which Alan Cox
- put in.
-
-Thu Oct 20 23:44:22 1994 Theodore Y. Ts'o (tytso@rt-11)
-
- * fcntl.c (sys_fcntl): Add more of a security check to the
- F_SETOWN fcntl().
-
-[Tons of changes missed, indeed. This list is worth restarting since
-at least some fixes WILL break third-party filesystems. Sorry, but
-there was no other way to fix rmdir/rename deadlock, for one.]
-
-Wed Dec 2 (Linus, fill the rest, please)
-
- * namei.c (do_rmdir) and rmdir method in filesystems:
- Locking of directory we remove was taken to VFS.
- See comments in do_rmdir(). Unfixed filesystems
- will bloody likely deadlock in rmdir().
-
-Thu Dec 3 17:25:31 1998 Al Viro (viro@math.psu.edu)
-
- * namei.c (do_rmdir):
- Reject non-directories here.
- Two (probably) obsolete checks moved here too: we fail if
- the directory we remove is the same as parent (BUG: we
- serve mountpoints later) or if it lives on a different
- device.
- * sysv/namei.c (sysv_rmdir): See sysv/CHANGES
-
-Fri Dec 4 00:54:12 1998 AV
-
- * namei.c (check_sticky): New function check_sticky(dir, inode).
- If dir is sticky check whether we can unlink/rmdir/rename
- the inode. Returns 1 if we can't. If dir isn't sticky -
- return 0 (i.e. no objections). Some filesystems require
- suser() here; some are fine with CAP_FOWNER. The later
- seems more reasonable.
- * namei.c (do_rmdir):
- Moved the check for sticky bit here.
- * affs/{inode,namei}.c:
- All AFFS directories have sticky semantics (i.e. non-owner
- having write permisssions on directory can unlink/rmdir/rename
- only the files he owns), but AFFS didn't set S_ISVTX on them.
- Fixed. NB: maybe this behaviour should be controlled by mount
- option. Obvious values being 'sticky' (current behaviour),
- 'nonsticky' (normal behaviour) and maybe some play on 'D'
- permissions bit. FIXME.
- * qnx4/namei.c (qnx4_rmdir):
- Plugged inode leak.
- * ufs/namei.c (ufs_rmdir):
- Changed handling of busy directory to new scheme.
-
-Fri Dec 4 10:30:58 1998 AV
-
- * namei.c (VFS_rmdir): New function. It gets inode of the parent and
- dentry of the victim, does all checks and applies fs-specific
- rmdir() method. It should be called with semaphores down
- on both the victim and its parent and with bumped d_count on
- victim (see comments in do_rmdir).
- * include/linux/fs.h: Added VFS_rmdir
- * kernel/ksyms.c: Added VFS_rmdir to export list (for NFSD).
- * nfsd/vfs.c: Fixed rmdir handling.
-
-Tue Dec 8 05:55:08 1998 AV
- * vfat/namei.c: Fixed the bug in vfat_rename() introduced in the
- first round of rmdir fixes.
-
-Wed Dec 9 03:06:10 1998 AV
- * namei.c (do_rename): part of fs-independent checks had been moved
- here (sticky bit handling, type mismatches). Cases of
- the source or target being append-only or immutable also went
- here - if we check it for parent we could as well do it for
- children.
- * {affs,ext2,minix,sysv,ufs}/namei.c (do_*_rename):
- Removed tests that went to VFS, it simplified the code big way.
- Fixed a race in check for empty target - we should check for
- extra owners _before_ checking for emptiness, not after it.
- * {ext2,ufs}/namei.c (do_*_rename):
- VERY nasty bug shot: if somebody mkdired /tmp/cca01234, went
- there, rmdired '.', waited till somebody created a file with
- the same name and said mv . /tmp/goodbye_sticky_bit... Well,
- goodbye sticky bit. Down, not across!
- * {minix,sysv}/namei.c (do_*_rename):
- Incorrect check for other owners (i_count instead of d_count).
- Fixed.
- * vfat: Looks like the changes above fixed a bug in VFAT - this beast
- used to allow renaming file over directory and vice versa.
-
-Wed Dec 9 08:00:27 1998 AV
- * namei.c (VFS_rename): New function. It gets the same arguments as
- ->rename() method, does all checks and applies fs-specific
- rmdir() method. It should be called with semaphores down
- on both parents.
- * include/linux/fs.h: Added VFS_rename
- * kernel/ksyms.c: Added VFS_rename to export list (for NFSD).
- * nfsd/vfs.c: Changed rename handling (switched to VFS_rename).
-
-Wed Dec 9 18:16:27 1998 AV
- * namei.c (do_unlink): handling of sticky bit went here.
- * {affs,ext2,minix,qnx4,sysv,ufs}/namei.c (*_unlink):
- removed handling of sticky bit.
- * qnx4/namei.c (qnx4_unlink):
- Yet another inode leak. Fixed.
-
-Thu Dec 10 04:55:26 1998 AV
- * {ext2,minix,sysv,ufs}/namei.c (*_mknod):
- removed meaningless code handling attempts to mknod symlinks
- and directories. VFS protects us from _that_ and if this code
- would ever be called we'ld get a filesystem corruption.
-
-Thu Dec 10 16:58:50 1998 AV
- * namei.c (do_rename): Fixed dentry leak that had been introduced by
- the first round of rmdir fixes.
-
-Fri Dec 11 14:57:17 1998 AV
- * msdos/namei.c (msdos_rmdir): Fixed race in emptiness check.
-
-Sat Dec 12 19:59:57 1998 AV
- * msdos/namei.c (msdos_mkdir): Fixed the evil breakage introduced by
- the changes of rmdir locking scheme. We shouldn't call
- msdos_rmdir from there.
-
-Sun Dec 13 02:05:16 1998 AV
- * namei.c (do_unlink):
- Added new function: vfs_unlink, with the same arguments as
- ->unlink() method.
- * kernel/ksyms.c: Made it exported.
- * include/linux/fs.h: Added prototype.
- * nfsd/vfs.c: Changed handling of unlink (switched to vfs_unlink)
- * {ext2,ufs}/namei.c (*_unlink): moved handling of imm./append-only to
- VFS.
-
-Wed Dec 16 06:10:04 1998 AV
- * namei.c (may_create, may_delete): New inline functions.
- They check whether creation/deletion is permitted.
- Checks from other places of namei.c went there.
- Looks like originally I misread permission-related stuff
- both here and in nfsd. In particular, checks for
- immutable are done in permission(). D'oh.
- * unlink on directory should return -EISDIR, not -EPERM as it used to
- do. Fixed.
- * rmdir of immutable/append-only directory shouldn't be allowed. Fixed.
-
-Remains unfixed:
- * rename's handling of races is, erm, not optimal. Looks like I know
- what to do, but this thing needs some more cleanup - we can
- take care of almost all races in VFS and be much more graceful
- wrt locking. Moreover, it would give strong lookup atomicity.
- But it's a lot of changes to lookup and dcache code, so it will
- go after the fs drivers' cleanup.
- * affs allows HARD links to directories. VFS is, to put it politely,
- not too ready to cope with _that_. And I'm not sure it should
- be - looks like they are pretty much similar to symlinks.
- * truncate doesn't give a damn about IO errors and disk overflows (on
- braindead filesystems). I've submitted a patch to Linus, but
- looks like it wasn't applied.
- * msdos: shouldn't we treat SYS as IMMUTABLE? Makes sense, IMHO.
