    security, overlayfs: Provide hook to correctly label newly created files · 2602625b
    Vivek Goyal authored
    During a new file creation we need to make sure new file is created with the
    right label. New file is created in upper/ so effectively file should get
    label as if task had created file in upper/.
    We switched to mounter's creds for actual file creation. Also if there is a
    whiteout present, then file will be created in work/ dir first and then
    renamed in upper. In none of the cases file will be labeled as we want it to
    This patch introduces a new hook dentry_create_files_as(), which determines
    the label/context dentry will get if it had been created by task in upper
    and modify passed set of creds appropriately. Caller makes use of these new
    creds for file creation.
