Subject[patch 124/149] vfs: add NOFOLLOW flag to umount(2)
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

commit db1f05bb85d7966b9176e293f3ceead1cb8b5d79 upstream.

Add a new UMOUNT_NOFOLLOW flag to umount(2). This is needed to prevent
symlink attacks in unprivileged unmounts (fuse, samba, ncpfs).

Additionally, return -EINVAL if an unknown flag is used (and specify
an explicitly unused flag: UMOUNT_UNUSED). This makes it possible for
the caller to determine if a flag is supported or not.
