    [patch 4/4] vfs: immutable inode checking cleanup · beb29e05
    Miklos Szeredi authored
    Move the immutable and append-only checks from chmod, chown and utimes
    into notify_change().  Checks for immutable and append-only files are
    always performed by the VFS and not by the filesystem (see
    permission() and may_...() in namei.c), so these belong in
    notify_change(), and not in inode_change_ok().
    This should be completely equivalent.
