Subject[PATCH 5.9 52/74] erofs: avoid duplicated permission check for "trusted." xattrs
Date
From: Gao Xiang <hsiangkao@redhat.com>

commit d578b46db69d125a654f509bdc9091d84e924dc8 upstream.

Don't recheck it since xattr_permission() already
checks CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability.

Just follow 5d3ce4f70172 ("f2fs: avoid duplicated permission check for "trusted." xattrs")

Reported-by: Hongyu Jin <hongyu.jin@unisoc.com>
[ Gao Xiang: since it could cause some complex Android overlay
permission issue as well on android-5.4+, it'd be better to
backport to 5.4+ rather than pure cleanup on mainline. ]
