[PATCH 00/12] acl: remove remaining posix acl handlers

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


Hey everyone,

after we finished the introduction of the new posix acl api last cycle
we still left the generic POSIX ACL xattr handler around for two
reasons. First, because a few filesystems relied on the ->list() method
of the generic POSIX ACL xattr handlers in their ->listxattr() inode
operation. Second, during inode initalization in inode_init_always() the
registered xattr handlers in sb->s_xattr are used to raise IOP_XATTR in

With the removal of the legacy POSIX ACL handlers it is at least
possible for a filesystem to only implement POSIX ACLs but no other
xattrs. If that were to happen we would miss to raise IOP_XATTR because
sb->s_xattr would be NULL.

Fix these things and then get rid of the misleading and effectively
already unused generic POSIX ACL handlers.

For most filesystems it is a trivial removal of the generic POSIX ACL
handlers. Only for erofs, ext2, ext4, f2fs, jffs2, reiserfs, oc2fs the
handler is used but rather easy to fix.

All filesystems with reasonable integration into xfstests have been
tested with:

        ./check -g acl,attr,cap,idmapped,io_uring,perms,unlink

All tests pass without regression on xfstests for-next branch.

Since erofs doesn't have integration into xfstests yet afaict I have
tested it with the testuite available in erofs-utils. They also all pass
without any regressions.

This branch depends on [1] which hopefully should be merged soon and can
be pulled from [2] which already includes [1] so it's easy to test and

With this all remnants of the old POSIX ACL xattr handling will be gone.
