[PATCH 3.15 013/109] fuse: ignore entry-timeout on LOOKUP_REVAL

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

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


From: Anand Avati <avati@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 154210ccb3a871e631bf39fdeb7a8731d98af87b upstream.

The following test case demonstrates the bug:

sh# mount -t glusterfs localhost:meta-test /mnt/one

sh# mount -t glusterfs localhost:meta-test /mnt/two

sh# echo stuff > /mnt/one/file; rm -f /mnt/two/file; echo stuff > /mnt/one/file
bash: /mnt/one/file: Stale file handle

sh# echo stuff > /mnt/one/file; rm -f /mnt/two/file; sleep 1; echo stuff > /mnt/one/file

On the second open() on /mnt/one, FUSE would have used the old
nodeid (file handle) trying to re-open it. Gluster is returning
-ESTALE. The ESTALE propagates back to namei.c:filename_lookup()
where lookup is re-attempted with LOOKUP_REVAL. The right
behavior now, would be for FUSE to ignore the entry-timeout and
and do the up-call revalidation. Instead FUSE is ignoring
LOOKUP_REVAL, succeeding the revalidation (because entry-timeout
has not passed), and open() is again retried on the old file
handle and finally the ESTALE is going back to the application.

Fix: if revalidation is happening with LOOKUP_REVAL, then ignore
entry-timeout and always do the up-call.
