    ovl: check whiteout in ovl_create_over_whiteout() · 5e127580
    Miklos Szeredi authored
    Kaixuxia repors that it's possible to crash overlayfs by removing the
    whiteout on the upper layer before creating a directory over it.  This is a
     mkdir lower upper work merge
     touch lower/file
     mount -t overlay overlay -olowerdir=lower,upperdir=upper,workdir=work merge
     rm merge/file
     ls -al merge/file
     rm upper/file
     ls -al merge/
     mkdir merge/file
    Before commencing with a vfs_rename(..., RENAME_EXCHANGE) verify that the
    lookup of "upper" is positive and is a whiteout, and return ESTALE
