SubjectRegression caused by commit c83ed4c9dbb3 "ubifs: Abort readdir on error"
Date
Hi!

Early on in my boot procedure I create an overlay and shuffle
things around a bit so that the original rootfs stays readonly
at the bottom of an overlayed readwrite fs. This way I can just
toss out the overlayed fs and have a clean and reliable way to
do a "factory-reset". Both the read-only root and and the overlay
are ubifs on nand.

Bisection points to commit c83ed4c9dbb3 "ubifs: Abort readdir
on error". Reverting that commit on top of v4.9-rc2 fixes things.

My "shuffle script" is as follows (with an added comment
indicating the first point of failure) and runs as the first
script by init.

If I add a line
ls -l /mnt || echo "ls -l /mnt failed"
where that comment is right before the failure, I get no failure
indication even with the broken commit, so directory traversal
seems ok.

Cheers,
Peter
