[PATCH v34 06/13] fs,security: Add sb_delete hook

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


From: Mickaël Salaün <mic@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The sb_delete security hook is called when shutting down a superblock,
which may be useful to release kernel objects tied to the superblock's
lifetime (e.g. inodes).

This new hook is needed by Landlock to release (ephemerally) tagged
struct inodes.  This comes from the unprivileged nature of Landlock
described in the next commit.
