Subject[PATCH] Fix sync. in blkdev_write_iter() acessing i_flags
Date

inode.i_flags might be altered without proper
synchronisation when the inode belongs to devtmpfs.
blkdev_write_iter() starts writing via __generic_file_write_iter()
which sets S_NOSEC bit without any synchronisation.
The following stacktrace shows how to get there:
13: entry_SYSENTER_32:460
12: do_fast_syscall_32:410
11: _static_cpu_has:146
10: do_syscall_32_irqs_on:322
09: SyS_pwrite64:636
08: SYSC_pwrite64:650
07: fdput:38
06: vfs_write:560
05: __vfs_write:512
04: new_sync_write:500
03: blkdev_write_iter:1977
02: __generic_file_write_iter:2897
01: file_remove_privs:1818
00: inode_has_no_xattr:3163
If S_NOSEC is *not* set, i_rwsem is acquired around
__generic_file_write_iter().
