[ 096/127] reiserfs: fix problems with chowning setuid file w/ xattrs
From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

3.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Jeff Mahoney <jeffm@xxxxxxxx>
commit 4a8570112b76a63ad21cfcbe2783f98f7fd5ba1b upstream.
reiserfs_chown_xattrs() takes the iattr struct passed into ->setattr
and uses it to iterate over all the attrs associated with a file to change
ownership of xattrs (and transfer quota associated with the xattr files).
When the setuid bit is cleared during chown, ATTR_MODE and iattr->ia_mode
are passed to all the xattrs as well. This means that the xattr directory
will have S_IFREG added to its mode bits.
This has been prevented in practice by a missing IS_PRIVATE check
in reiserfs_acl_chmod, which caused a double-lock to occur while holding
the write lock. Since the file system was completely locked up, the
writeout of the corrupted mode never happened.
This patch temporarily clears everything but ATTR_UID|ATTR_GID for the
calls to reiserfs_setattr and adds the missing IS_PRIVATE check.
