Subject[PATCH 5.3 068/180] ovl: fix corner case of non-unique st_dev;st_ino
Date
From: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@gmail.com>

commit 9c6d8f13e9da10a26ad7f0a020ef86e8ef142835 upstream.

On non-samefs overlay without xino, non pure upper inodes should use a
pseudo_dev assigned to each unique lower fs and pure upper inodes use the
real upper st_dev.

It is fine for an overlay pure upper inode to use the same st_dev;st_ino
values as the real upper inode, because the content of those two different
filesystem objects is always the same.

In this case, however:
- two filesystems, A and B
- upper layer is on A
- lower layer 1 is also on A
- lower layer 2 is on B

Non pure upper overlay inode, whose origin is in layer 1 will have the same
st_dev;st_ino values as the real lower inode. This may result with a false
positive results of 'diff' between the real lower and copied up overlay
inode.

Fix this by using the upper st_dev;st_ino values in this case. This breaks
the property of constant st_dev;st_ino across copy up of this case. This
breakage will be fixed by a later patch.
