ext4: do not try to set xattr into ea_inode if value is empty
Syzbot report a warning that ext4 may create an empty ea_inode if set an empty extent attribute to a file on the file system which is no free blocks left. WARNING: CPU: 6 PID: 10667 at fs/ext4/xattr.c:1640 ext4_xattr_set_entry+0x10f8/0x1114 fs/ext4/xattr.c:1640 ... Call trace: ext4_xattr_set_entry+0x10f8/0x1114 fs/ext4/xattr.c:1640 ext4_xattr_block_set+0x1d0/0x1b1c fs/ext4/xattr.c:1942 ext4_xattr_set_handle+0x8a0/0xf1c fs/ext4/xattr.c:2390 ext4_xattr_set+0x120/0x1f0 fs/ext4/xattr.c:2491 ext4_xattr_trusted_set+0x48/0x5c fs/ext4/xattr_trusted.c:37 __vfs_setxattr+0x208/0x23c fs/xattr.c:177 ... Now, ext4 try to store extent attribute into an external inode if ext4_xattr_block_set() return -ENOSPC, but for the case of store an empty extent attribute, store the extent entry into the extent attribute block is enough. A simple reproduce below. fallocate test.img -l 1M mkfs.ext4 -F -b 2048 -O ea_inode test.img mount test.img /mnt dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/foo bs=2048 count=500 setfattr -n "user.test" /mnt/foo Reported-by: syzbot+98b881fdd8ebf45ab4ae@syzkaller.appspotmail.com Fixes: 9c6e7853c531 ("ext4: reserve space for xattr entries/names") Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: zhangyi (F) <yi.zhang@huawei.com> Link: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210305120508.298465-1-yi.zhang@huawei.com Signed-off-by: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu>
