Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://
Pull user namespace and namespace infrastructure changes from Eric W Biederman: "This set of changes starts with a few small enhnacements to the user namespace. reboot support, allowing more arbitrary mappings, and support for mounting devpts, ramfs, tmpfs, and mqueuefs as just the user namespace root. I do my best to document that if you care about limiting your unprivileged users that when you have the user namespace support enabled you will need to enable memory control groups. There is a minor bug fix to prevent overflowing the stack if someone creates way too many user namespaces. The bulk of the changes are a continuation of the kuid/kgid push down work through the filesystems. These changes make using uids and gids typesafe which ensures that these filesystems are safe to use when multiple user namespaces are in use. The filesystems converted for 3.9 are ceph, 9p, afs, ocfs2, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, nfsd, and cifs. The changes for these filesystems were a little more involved so I split the changes into smaller hopefully obviously correct changes. XFS is the only filesystem that remains. I was hoping I could get that in this release so that user namespace support would be enabled with an allyesconfig or an allmodconfig but it looks like the xfs changes need another couple of days before it they are ready." * 'for-linus' of git:// (93 commits) cifs: Enable building with user namespaces enabled. cifs: Convert struct cifs_ses to use a kuid_t and a kgid_t cifs: Convert struct cifs_sb_info to use kuids and kgids cifs: Modify struct smb_vol to use kuids and kgids cifs: Convert struct cifsFileInfo to use a kuid cifs: Convert struct cifs_fattr to use kuid and kgids cifs: Convert struct tcon_link to use a kuid. cifs: Modify struct cifs_unix_set_info_args to hold a kuid_t and a kgid_t cifs: Convert from a kuid before printing current_fsuid cifs: Use kuids and kgids SID to uid/gid mapping cifs: Pass GLOBAL_ROOT_UID and GLOBAL_ROOT_GID to keyring_alloc cifs: Use BUILD_BUG_ON to validate uids and gids are the same size cifs: Override unmappable incoming uids and gids nfsd: Enable building with user namespaces enabled. nfsd: Properly compare and initialize kuids and kgids nfsd: Store ex_anon_uid and ex_anon_gid as kuids and kgids nfsd: Modify nfsd4_cb_sec to use kuids and kgids nfsd: Handle kuids and kgids in the nfs4acl to posix_acl conversion nfsd: Convert nfsxdr to use kuids and kgids nfsd: Convert nfs3xdr to use kuids and kgids ...
