Subject[AppArmor 32/47] From: Miklos Szeredi <>
Add a new file operation: f_op->fgetattr(), that is invoked by
fstat(). Fall back to i_op->getattr() if it is not defined.

We need this because fstat() semantics can in some cases be better
implemented if the filesystem has the open file available.

Let's take the following example: we have a network filesystem, with
the server implemented as an unprivileged userspace process running on
a UNIX system (this is basically what sshfs does).

We want the filesystem to follow the familiar UNIX file semantics as
closely as possible. If for example we have this sequence of events,
we still would like fstat to work correctly:

1) file X is opened on client
2) file X is renamed to Y on server
3) fstat() is performed on open file descriptor on client

This is only possible if the filesystem server acutally uses fstat()
on a file descriptor obtained when the file was opened. Which means,
the filesystem client needs a way to get this information from the
VFS.

Even if we assume, that the remote filesystem never changes, it is
difficult to implement open-unlink-fstat semantics correctly in the
client, without having this information.
