Subject[PATCH 5.3 069/180] ovl: relax WARN_ON() on rename to self
Date
From: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@gmail.com>

commit 6889ee5a53b8d969aa542047f5ac8acdc0e79a91 upstream.

In ovl_rename(), if new upper is hardlinked to old upper underneath
overlayfs before upper dirs are locked, user will get an ESTALE error
and a WARN_ON will be printed.

Changes to underlying layers while overlayfs is mounted may result in
unexpected behavior, but it shouldn't crash the kernel and it shouldn't
trigger WARN_ON() either, so relax this WARN_ON().
