[PATCH 5/5] btrfs: Zero bytes after 'oldsize' if we're expanding the file

[Date Prev] [Date Next] [Thread Prev] [Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

POSIX requires that "If the file size is increased, the extended area
shall appear as if it were zero-filled".  It is possible to use mmap to
write past EOF and that data will become visible instead of zeroes.
