Subject[34-longterm 114/247] eCryptfs: Copy up lower inode attrs in getattr
From: Tyler Hicks <>

This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.

commit 55f9cf6bbaa682958a7dd2755f883b768270c3ce upstream.

The lower filesystem may do some type of inode revalidation during a
getattr call. eCryptfs should take advantage of that by copying the
lower inode attributes to the eCryptfs inode after a call to
vfs_getattr() on the lower inode.

I originally wrote this fix while working on eCryptfs on nfsv3 support,
but discovered it also fixed an eCryptfs on ext4 nanosecond timestamp
bug that was reported.
