Subject: [patch 00/10]  mount ownership and unprivileged mount syscall (v5)
Date: Fri, 27 Apr 2007 14:04:17 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

v4 -> v5:

 - fold back Andrew's changes
 - fold back my update patch:
    o use fsuid instead of ruid
    o allow forced unpriv. unmounts for "safe" filesystems
    o allow mounting over special files, but not over symlinks
    o set nosuid and nodev based on lack of specific capability
 - patch header updates
 - new patch: on propagation inherit owner from parent
 - new patch: add "no submounts" mount flag

The last two patches are up for discussion.

The rest I think is in pretty good shape for merging.  If somebody
feels otherwise, please complain now.
