[PATCH 4.2 083/110] ovl: use O_LARGEFILE in ovl_copy_up()

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Fri Nov 06 2015 - 14:31:11 EST

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


From: David Howells <dhowells@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 0480334fa60488d12ae101a02d7d9e1a3d03d7dd upstream.

Open the lower file with O_LARGEFILE in ovl_copy_up().

Pass O_LARGEFILE unconditionally in ovl_copy_up_data() as it's purely for
catching 32-bit userspace dealing with a file large enough that it'll be
mishandled if the application isn't aware that there might be an integer
overflow. Inside the kernel, there shouldn't be any problems.
