Subject[PATCH 18/62] Driver-Core: devtmpfs - reset inode permissions before unlinking
Date
From: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org>

Before unlinking the inode, reset the current permissions of possible
references like hardlinks, so granted permissions can not be retained
across the device lifetime by creating hardlinks, in the unusual case
that there is a user-writable directory on the same filesystem.
