Workaround XFS sgid bit not inherited


vfs objects = linux_xfs_sgid


This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

vfs_linux_xfs_sgid is a VFS module to work around an old Linux XFS bug fixed in 3.11: the SGID bit is not inherited during mkdir when a default ACL is set (https://web.archive.org/web/20160320180937/http://oss.sgi.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=280 fixed by https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=42c49d7f249c2487f36d3314753d5d8ebcee8249). The vfs_linux_xfs_sgid VFS module will work around this bug by manually setting the SGID bit after a mkdir if the parent directory had the SGID bit set.

This module is stackable.


Add linux_xfs_sgid functionality for [share]:
