Subject: [PATCH 5.4 3/4] f2fs: prevent creating duplicate encrypted filenames

From: Eric Biggers <>

commit bfc2b7e8518999003a61f91c1deb5e88ed77b07d upstream.

As described in "fscrypt: add fscrypt_is_nokey_name()", it's possible to
create a duplicate filename in an encrypted directory by creating a file
concurrently with adding the directory's encryption key.

Fix this bug on f2fs by rejecting no-key dentries in f2fs_add_link().

Note that the weird check for the current task in f2fs_do_add_link()
seems to make this bug difficult to reproduce on f2fs.

Fixes: 9ea97163c6da ("f2fs crypto: add filename encryption for f2fs_add_link")
