Subject[PATCHv2] vfs: Handle file systems without ->parse_params better
Date

The new mount API relies on file systems to provide a ->parse_params
function to handle parsing of arguments. If a file system doesn't
have a ->parse_param function, it falls back to parsing the source
option and rejecting all other options. This is a change in behavior
for some file systems which would just quietly ignore extra options
and mount successfully. This was noticed by users as squashfs failing
to mount with extra options after the conversion to the new mount
API.

File systems with a ->parse_params function rely on the top level
to parse the "source" param so we can't easily move that around. To
get around this, introduce a default parsing functions for file
systems that take no arguments. This parses only the "source" option
and only logs an error for other arguments. Update the comment
to reflect this expected behavior for "source" parsing as well.

Fixes: 3e1aeb00e6d1 ("vfs: Implement a filesystem superblock
creation/configuration context")

v2: Dropped most the boiler plate for parsing and just compared
against "source". Renamed to ignore_unknown_parse_param.
