Andreas Gruenbacher - July 19, 2010, 7:19 p.m.
Aneesh,

here is a patch on top of the richacl-upstream queue.

So far, we were assuming that acls are always masked, and the file masks
could be set so that they would not mask any permissions.  This is fine
for permission checking, but richacl_apply_masks() didn't recognize when
the file masks were set to mask nothing, and was still transforming such
acls unnecessarily.  This could lead to correct but surprising results.

Instead of using a flag here we could check if the file masks are set to
"ineffective" values, but that would require the same computation as
richacl_compute_max_masks(), which can be a slow on large acls.  It is a
lot easier to instead remember if the file masks are "effective".

(We still need to compute the file masks in nfsd where no file masks are
supplied so that the file permission bits will be set to a reasonable
value. user space will always pass valid file masks in, so we are covered
in that side.)

Thanks,
Andreas

[PATCH] richacl: Allow acls to be masked or unmasked

Use a flag to indicate when the file masks can mask something
(e.g., after a chmod).  richacl_apply_masks() can skip transforming acls
without this flag, which speeds things up and avoids modifying those
acls unnecessarily.
