Subject: [PATCH 0/4 v5 RESEND] devpts: handle bind-mounts correctly
Date: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 17:55:23 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Resending to CC grekh.

Hey everyone,

This is the fith iteration of this patch. Per-patch changes are
summarized in the individual patches:

ChangeLog v4->v5:
* added non-functional patch to document devpts_mntget().
  Reason for putting this in a separate patch is that it allows you,
  Linus and Eric, to simply drop it if judged useless.
* reverse error handling logic to further simplify
* dput() dentry in the non-function patch. This was not really a problem
  since the following patch included a fix for it. But better to get it
  right in all individual patches.
* I did another rewrite of the problem analysis for
  posterity in the patch "Subject: [PATCH 2/3 v3] devpts: resolve devpts
  bind-mounts" and in this cover letter.

ChangeLog v3->v4:
* small logical simplifications
* add test that bind-mounts of /dev/pts/ptmx to locations that do not
  resolve to a valid slave pty path under the originating devpts mount

ChangeLog v2->v3:
* rewritten commit message to thoroughly analyse the problem for
  posterity in the patch "Subject: [PATCH 2/3 v3] devpts: resolve devpts
  bind-mounts" and in this cover letter.
* extended selftests to test for correct handling of /dev/pts/ptmx
  bind-mounts to /dev/ptmx and non-standard devpts mounts such as
  mount -t devpts devpts /mnt

ChangeLog v1->v2:
* see individual patches
ChangeLog v0->v1:
* see individual patches
