[PATCH 4.4 45/50] ovl: fix getcwd() failure after unsuccessful rmdir

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Mar 14 2016 - 14:11:54 EST

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


From: Rui Wang <rui.y.wang@xxxxxxxxx>

commit ce9113bbcbf45a57c082d6603b9a9f342be3ef74 upstream.

ovl_remove_upper() should do d_drop() only after it successfully
removes the dir, otherwise a subsequent getcwd() system call will
fail, breaking userspace programs.

This is to fix: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110491
