[PATCH 3.14 51/53] tmpfs: dont undo fallocate past its last page

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Jul 25 2016 - 17:10:25 EST

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


From: Anthony Romano <anthony.romano@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit b9b4bb26af017dbe930cd4df7f9b2fc3a0497bfe upstream.

When fallocate is interrupted it will undo a range that extends one byte
past its range of allocated pages. This can corrupt an in-use page by
zeroing out its first byte. Instead, undo using the inclusive byte
