SubjectRe: [PATCH] fs: coda: fix a double-fetch case in coda_psdev_write
From
This has come up before, and as you noticed nothing in that header is looked at after that second copy.

Also if the user space cache manager was trying to be malicious it wouldn't have to resort to multi-threaded race conditions. It could make a setuid root shell appear, or many other things a file system can do.
