Subject[PATCH 3.16 081/134] fanotify: don't expose EOPENSTALE to userspace
3.16.47-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@gmail.com>

commit 4ff33aafd32e084f5ee7faa54ba06e95f8b1b8af upstream.

When delivering an event to userspace for a file on an NFS share,
if the file is deleted on server side before user reads the event,
user will not get the event.

If the event queue contained several events, the stale event is
quietly dropped and read() returns to user with events read so far
in the buffer.

If the event queue contains a single stale event or if the stale
event is a permission event, read() returns to user with the kernel
internal error code 518 (EOPENSTALE), which is not a POSIX error code.

Check the internal return value -EOPENSTALE in fanotify_read(), just
the same as it is checked in path_openat() and drop the event in the
cases that it is not already dropped.

This is a reproducer from Marko Rauhamaa:

Just take the example program listed under "man fanotify" ("fantest")
and follow these steps:

==============================================================
NFS Server NFS Client(1) NFS Client(2)
==============================================================
# echo foo >/nfsshare/bar.txt
# cat /nfsshare/bar.txt
foo
# ./fantest /nfsshare
Press enter key to terminate.
Listening for events.
# rm -f /nfsshare/bar.txt
# cat /nfsshare/bar.txt
read: Unknown error 518
cat: /nfsshare/bar.txt: Operation not permitted
==============================================================

where NFS Client (1) and (2) are two terminal sessions on a single NFS
Client machine.
