SubjectRe: [PATCH linux-2.6 03/04] brsem: fix ro-remount <-> open race condition
Date
03_brsem_fix-remount-open-race.patch

A file can be opened rw while ro-remounting is in progress
resulting in open rw file on ro mounted filesystem. This
patch kills the race by making permission check and the rest
of open atomic w.r.t. remounting. Other file operations also
have this race condition and should be fixed in similar
manner.
