[PATCH v7 1/6] reiserfs: Switch to security_inode_init_security()

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


From: Roberto Sassu <roberto.sassu@xxxxxxxxxx>

In preparation for removing security_old_inode_init_security(), switch to

Define the initxattrs callback reiserfs_initxattrs(), to populate the
name/value/len triple in the reiserfs_security_handle() with the first
xattr provided by LSMs. Make a copy of the xattr value, as
security_inode_init_security() frees it.

After the call to security_inode_init_security(), remove the check for
returning -EOPNOTSUPP, as security_inode_init_security() changes it to

Multiple xattrs are currently not supported, as the
reiserfs_security_handle structure is exported to user space. As a
consequence, even if EVM is invoked, it will not provide an xattr (if it
is not the first to set it, its xattr will be discarded; if it is the
first, it does not have xattrs to calculate the HMAC on).
