Subject: [PATCH 1/8] mm/fs: don't allow writes to immutable files

From: Darrick J. Wong <darrick.wong@...cle.com>

The chattr manpage has this to say about immutable files:

"A file with the 'i' attribute cannot be modified: it cannot be deleted
or renamed, no link can be created to this file, most of the file's
metadata can not be modified, and the file can not be opened in write
mode."

Once the flag is set, it is enforced for quite a few file operations,
such as fallocate, fpunch, fzero, rm, touch, open, etc.  However, we
don't check for immutability when doing a write(), a PROT_WRITE mmap(),
a truncate(), or a write to a previously established mmap.

If a program has an open write fd to a file that the administrator
subsequently marks immutable, the program still can change the file
contents.  Weird!

The ability to write to an immutable file does not follow the manpage
promise that immutable files cannot be modified.  Worse yet it's
inconsistent with the behavior of other syscalls which don't allow
modifications of immutable files.

Therefore, add the necessary checks to make the write, mmap, and
truncate behavior consistent with what the manpage says and consistent
with other syscalls on filesystems which support IMMUTABLE.
