Subject[PATCH 4.2 38/61] btrfs: fix resending received snapshot with parent
4.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Robin Ruede <>

commit b96b1db039ebc584d03a9933b279e0d3e704c528 upstream.

This fixes a regression introduced by 37b8d27d between v4.1 and v4.2.

When a snapshot is received, its received_uuid is set to the original
uuid of the subvolume. When that snapshot is then resent to a third
filesystem, it's received_uuid is set to the second uuid
instead of the original one. The same was true for the parent_uuid.
This behaviour was partially changed in 37b8d27d, but in that patch
only the parent_uuid was taken from the real original,
not the uuid itself, causing the search for the parent to fail in
the case below.

This happens for example when trying to send a series of linked
snapshots (e.g. created by snapper) from the backup file system back
to the original one.

The following commands reproduce the issue in v4.2.1
(no error in 4.1.6)

# setup three test file systems
for i in 1 2 3; do
truncate -s 50M fs$i
mkfs.btrfs fs$i
mkdir $i
mount fs$i $i
echo "content" > 1/testfile
btrfs su snapshot -r 1/ 1/snap1
echo "changed content" > 1/testfile
btrfs su snapshot -r 1/ 1/snap2

# works fine:
btrfs send 1/snap1 | btrfs receive 2/
btrfs send -p 1/snap1 1/snap2 | btrfs receive 2/

# ERROR: could not find parent subvolume
btrfs send 2/snap1 | btrfs receive 3/
btrfs send -p 2/snap1 2/snap2 | btrfs receive 3/
