Subject[patch 21/87] nfs: Fix NFS v4 client handling of MAY_EXEC in nfs_permission.
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Frank Filz <ffilzlnx@us.ibm.com>

commit 7ee2cb7f32b299c2b06a31fde155457203e4b7dd upstream.

The problem is that permission checking is skipped if atomic open is
possible, but when exec opens a file, it just opens it O_READONLY which
means EXEC permission will not be checked at that time.

This problem is observed by the following sequence (executed as root):

mount -t nfs4 server:/ /mnt4
echo "ls" >/mnt4/foo
chmod 744 /mnt4/foo
su guest -c "mnt4/foo"
