[PATCH v2] ext4: Don't reduce symlink i_mode by umask if no ACL support

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


If CONFIG_EXT4_FS_POSIX_ACL=n then the fallback version of ext4_init_acl()
will mask off the umask bits from the new inode's i_mode.  This should not
be done if the inode is a symlink.  If CONFIG_EXT4_FS_POSIX_ACL=y, then we
go through posix_acl_create() instead which does the right thing with

However, this is actually unnecessary now as vfs_prepare_mode() has already
done this where appropriate, so fix this by making the fallback version of
ext4_init_acl() do nothing.
