Subject: [PATCH v5 4/6] ubifs: don't trigger assertion on invalid no-key filename

From: Eric Biggers <>

If userspace provides an invalid fscrypt no-key filename which encodes a
hash value with any of the UBIFS node type bits set (i.e. the high 3
bits), gracefully report ENOENT rather than triggering ubifs_assert().

Test case with kvm-xfstests shell:

    . fs/ubifs/config
    . ~/xfstests/common/encrypt
    dev=$(__blkdev_to_ubi_volume /dev/vdc)
    ubiupdatevol $dev -t
    mount $dev /mnt -t ubifs
    mkdir /mnt/edir
    xfs_io -c set_encpolicy /mnt/edir

With the bug, the following assertion fails on the 'rm' command:

    [   19.066048] UBIFS error (ubi0:0 pid 379): ubifs_assert_failed: UBIFS assert failed: !(hash & ~UBIFS_S_KEY_HASH_MASK), in fs/ubifs/key.h:170
