[PATCH 4.15 039/146] ovl: redirect_dir=nofollow should not follow redirect for opaque lower

4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit d1fe96c0e4de78ba0cd336ea3df3b850d06b9b9a upstream.

redirect_dir=nofollow should not follow a redirect. But in a specific
configuration it can still follow it.  For example try this.

$ mkdir -p lower0 lower1/foo upper work merged
$ touch lower1/foo/lower-file.txt
$ setfattr -n "trusted.overlay.opaque" -v "y" lower1/foo
$ mount -t overlay -o lowerdir=lower1:lower0,workdir=work,upperdir=upper,redirect_dir=on none merged
$ cd merged
$ mv foo foo-renamed
$ umount merged

# mount again. This time with redirect_dir=nofollow
$ mount -t overlay -o lowerdir=lower1:lower0,workdir=work,upperdir=upper,redirect_dir=nofollow none merged
$ ls merged/foo-renamed/
# This lists lower-file.txt, while it should not have.

Basically, we are doing redirect check after we check for d.stop. And
if this is not last lower, and we find an opaque lower, d.stop will be

        if (!d->last && ovl_is_opaquedir(this)) {
                d->stop = d->opaque = true;
                goto out;

To fix this, first check redirect is allowed. And after that check if
d.stop has been set or not.
