Subject[PATCH 4.12 031/196] btrfs: Dont clear SGID when inheriting ACLs
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jan Kara <>

commit b7f8a09f8097db776b8d160862540e4fc1f51296 upstream.

When new directory 'DIR1' is created in a directory 'DIR0' with SGID bit
set, DIR1 is expected to have SGID bit set (and owning group equal to
the owning group of 'DIR0'). However when 'DIR0' also has some default
ACLs that 'DIR1' inherits, setting these ACLs will result in SGID bit on
'DIR1' to get cleared if user is not member of the owning group.

Fix the problem by moving posix_acl_update_mode() out of
__btrfs_set_acl() into btrfs_set_acl(). That way the function will not be
called when inheriting ACLs which is what we want as it prevents SGID
bit clearing and the mode has been properly set by posix_acl_create()
