Subject: CVE-2014-4014: Linux kernel user namespace bug

The internal function inode_capable was used inappropriately.
Depending on configuration, this may be usable to escalate privileges.
A cursory inspection of my Fedora box suggests that it is not
vulnerable to the obvious way to exploit this bug.

The fix should appear in Linus' -master shortly, and it's tagged for
stable.  In the mean time, I've attached it here.

I'll follow up in a day or two with a description of the actual bug,
or one of you can try to beat me to it.

Subject: [PATCH v3] fs,userns: Change inode_capable to capable_wrt_inode_uidgid

The kernel has no concept of capabilities with respect to inodes; inodes
exist independently of namespaces.  For example,
inode_capable(inode, CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE) would be nonsense.

This patch changes inode_capable to check for uid and gid mappings and
renames it to capable_wrt_inode_uidgid, which should make it more
obvious what it does.

Fixes CVE-2014-4014.
