fsnotify: fix handling of renames in audit
Commit e9fd702a58c4 ("audit: convert audit watches to use fsnotify instead of inotify") broke handling of renames in audit. Audit code wants to update inode number of an inode corresponding to watched name in a directory. When something gets renamed into a directory to a watched name, inotify previously passed moved inode to audit code however new fsnotify code passes directory inode where the change happened. That confuses audit and it starts watching parent directory instead of a file in a directory. This can be observed for example by doing: cd /tmp touch foo bar auditctl -w /tmp/foo touch foo mv bar foo touch foo In audit log we see events like: type=CONFIG_CHANGE msg=audit(1423563584.155:90): auid=1000 ses=2 op="updated rules" path="/tmp/foo" key=(null) list=4 res=1 ... type=PATH msg=audit(1423563584.155:91): item=2 name="bar" inode=1046884 dev=08:0 2 mode=0100644 ouid=0 ogid=0 rdev=00:00 nametype=DELETE type=PATH msg=audit(1423563584.155:91): item=3 name="foo" inode=1046842 dev=08:0 2 mode=0100644 ouid=0 ogid=0 rdev=00:00 nametype=DELETE type=PATH msg=audit(1423563584.155:91): item=4 name="foo" inode=1046884 dev=08:0 2 mode=0100644 ouid=0 ogid=0 rdev=00:00 nametype=CREATE ... and that's it - we see event for the first touch after creating the audit rule, we see events for rename but we don't see any event for the last touch. However we start seeing events for unrelated stuff happening in /tmp. Fix the problem by passing moved inode as data in the FS_MOVED_FROM and FS_MOVED_TO events instead of the directory where the change happens. This doesn't introduce any new problems because noone besides audit_watch.c cares about the passed value: fs/notify/fanotify/fanotify.c cares only about FSNOTIFY_EVENT_PATH events. fs/notify/dnotify/dnotify.c doesn't care about passed 'data' value at all. fs/notify/inotify/inotify_fsnotify.c uses 'data' only for FSNOTIFY_EVENT_PATH. kernel/audit_tree.c doesn't care about passed 'data' at all. kernel/audit_watch.c expects moved inode as 'data'.
