Subject[PATCH 5.10 055/120] ovl: avoid deadlock on directory ioctl
Date
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@redhat.com>

commit b854cc659dcb80f172cb35dbedc15d39d49c383f upstream.

The function ovl_dir_real_file() currently uses the inode lock to serialize
writes to the od->upperfile field.

However, this function will get called by ovl_ioctl_set_flags(), which
utilizes the inode lock too. In this case ovl_dir_real_file() will try to
claim a lock that is owned by a function in its call stack, which won't get
released before ovl_dir_real_file() returns.

Fix by replacing the open coded compare and exchange by an explicit atomic
op.

Fixes: 61536bed2149 ("ovl: support [S|G]ETFLAGS and FS[S|G]ETXATTR ioctls for directories")
