Subject[PATCH] hfsplus: Remove hfsplus_file_lookup
From
Date
From: Sougata Santra <sougata@tuxera.com>

HFS+ resource fork lookup breaks opendir() library function. Since
opendir first calls open() with O_DIRECTORY flag set. O_DIRECTORY
means "refuse to open if not a directory". The open system call
in the kernel does a check for inode->i_op->lookup and returns
-ENOTDIR. So if hfsplus_file_lookup is set it allows opendir()
for plain files.

Also resource fork lookup in HFS+ does not work. Since it is never
invoked after VFS permission checking. It will always return with
-EACCES.

When we call opendir() on a file, it does not return NULL.
opendir() library call is based on open with O_DIRECTORY flag
passed and then layered on top of getdents() system call.
O_DIRECTORY means "refuse to open if not a directory".

The open() system call in the kernel does a check for:
do_sys_open() -->..--> can_lookup() i.e it only checks
inode->i_op->lookup and returns ENOTDIR if
this function pointer is not set.
"
In OSX, we can open "file/rsrc" to get the resource fork of "file".
This behavior is emulated inside hfsplus on Linux, which means that
to some degree every file acts like a directory. That is the reason
lookup() inode operations is supported for files, and it is possible
to do a lookup on this specific name. As a result of this open succeeds
without returning ENOTDIR for HFS+
"
Please see the LKML discussion thread on this issue:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-fsdevel&m=122823343730412&w=2

I tried to test file/rsrc lookup in HFS+ driver and the feature does not work.
From OSX:
$ touch test
$ echo "1234" > test/..namedfork/rsrc
$ ls -l test..namedfork/rsrc
--rw-r--r-- 1 tuxera staff 5 10 dec 12:59 test/..namedfork/rsrc

[sougata@ultrabook tmp]$ id
uid=1000(sougata) gid=1000(sougata) groups=1000(sougata),5(tty),18(dialout),1001(vboxusers)

[sougata@ultrabook tmp]$ mount
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/tmp type hfsplus (rw,relatime,umask=0,uid=1000,gid=1000,nls=utf8)

[sougata@ultrabook tmp]$ ls -l test/rsrc
ls: cannot access test/rsrc: Permission denied

According to this LKML thread it is expected behavior.
http://marc.info/?t=121139033800008&r=1&w=4
I guess now that permission checking happens in vfs generic_permission() ?
So it turns out that even though the lookup() inode_operation exists for HFS+ files.
It cannot really get invoked ?. So if we can disable this feature to make opendir()
work for HFS+.

Thanks,
Sougata
