AFAICS, refcounting in there cannot be right:
+static struct dentry *mountfs_lookup(struct inode *dir, struct dentry *dentry,
+ unsigned int flags)
+{
+ struct mountfs_entry *entry = dir->i_private;
+ int i = 0;
+
+ if (entry) {
+ for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_SIZE(mountfs_attrs); i++)
+ if (strcmp(mountfs_attrs[i], dentry->d_name.name) == 0)
+ break;
+ if (i == ARRAY_SIZE(mountfs_attrs))
+ return ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM);
+ i++;
+ } else {
+ entry = mountfs_get_entry(dentry->d_name.name);
+ if (!entry)
+ return ERR_PTR(-ENOENT);
+ }
+
+ return mountfs_lookup_entry(dentry, entry, i);
+}
ends up consuming a reference in mountfs_lookup_entry() (at the very least,
drops it in case of inode allocation hitting OOM) and nothing in the
that loop in mountfs_lookup() appears to do a matching reference grab.
