parentmnt: Update detach_mounts to leave mounts connected (diff)
Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace
Pull usernamespace mount fixes from Eric Biederman: "Way back in October Andrey Vagin reported that umount(MNT_DETACH) could be used to defeat MNT_LOCKED. As I worked to fix this I discovered that combined with mount propagation and an appropriate selection of shared subtrees a reference to a directory on an unmounted filesystem is not necessary. That MNT_DETACH is allowed in user namespace in a form that can break MNT_LOCKED comes from my early misunderstanding what MNT_DETACH does. To avoid breaking existing userspace the conflict between MNT_DETACH and MNT_LOCKED is fixed by leaving mounts that are locked to their parents in the mount hash table until the last reference goes away. While investigating this issue I also found an issue with __detach_mounts. The code was unnecessarily and incorrectly triggering mount propagation. Resulting in too many mounts going away when a directory is deleted, and too many cpu cycles are burned while doing that. Looking some more I realized that __detach_mounts by only keeping mounts connected that were MNT_LOCKED it had the potential to still leak information so I tweaked the code to keep everything locked together that possibly could be. This code was almost ready last cycle but Al invented fs_pin which slightly simplifies this code but required rewrites and retesting, and I have not been in top form for a while so it took me a while to get all of that done. Similiarly this pull request is late because I have been feeling absolutely miserable all week. The issue of being able to escape a bind mount has not yet been addressed, as the fixes are not yet mature" * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace: mnt: Update detach_mounts to leave mounts connected mnt: Fix the error check in __detach_mounts mnt: Honor MNT_LOCKED when detaching mounts fs_pin: Allow for the possibility that m_list or s_list go unused. mnt: Factor umount_mnt from umount_tree mnt: Factor out unhash_mnt from detach_mnt and umount_tree mnt: Fail collect_mounts when applied to unmounted mounts mnt: Don't propagate unmounts to locked mounts mnt: On an unmount propagate clearing of MNT_LOCKED mnt: Delay removal from the mount hash. mnt: Add MNT_UMOUNT flag mnt: In umount_tree reuse mnt_list instead of mnt_hash mnt: Don't propagate umounts in __detach_mounts mnt: Improve the umount_tree flags mnt: Use hlist_move_list in namespace_unlock
