Subject[PATCH 4.19 06/50] ovl: perform vfs_getxattr() with mounter creds
Date
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 554677b97257b0b69378bd74e521edb7e94769ff ]

The vfs_getxattr() in ovl_xattr_set() is used to check whether an xattr
exist on a lower layer file that is to be removed. If the xattr does not
exist, then no need to copy up the file.

This call of vfs_getxattr() wasn't wrapped in credential override, and this
is probably okay. But for consitency wrap this instance as well.
