4.7-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Eric Biggers <ebigg...@google.com>
commit ba63f23d69a3a10e7e527a02702023da68ef8a6d upstream.
Since setting an encryption policy requires writing metadata to the
filesystem, it should be guarded by mnt_want_write/mnt_drop_write.
Otherwise, a user could cause a write to a frozen or readonly
filesystem. This was handled correctly by f2fs but not by ext4. Make
fscrypt_process_policy() handle it rather than relying on the filesystem
to get it right.
