SubjectRe: [Jfs-discussion] [PATCH] jfs: Expand usercopy whitelist for inline inode data

So, this may be a stupid question, but: is there a way to disable this
hardened usercopy thing with a boot option maybe?

Apparently, CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY_FALLBACK was disabled in Debian's
4.16.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 (4.16.16) kernels[0] and I have a VMware guest here
that prints a BUG message (below) whenever a certain directory is being
accesses. ls(1) is fine, but "ls -l" (i.e. with stat()) produces the splat
below. And indeed, the target of one of the symlinks inside is 129
characters long, and every attempt to stat it prints the splat below.

Going back to 4.16.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 (4.16.5) helps, but I was wondering if
there was a magic boot option to disable it while I wait for 4.18 to land
in Debian? I booted with hardened_usercopy=off, but it doesn't seem to
have an effect and the directory is still inaccessible.
