Btrfs: deny sys_link across subvolumes.
I rebased Christian Parpart's patch to deny hard link across subvolumes. Original patch modifies also btrfs_rename, but I excluded it because we can move across subvolumes now and it make no problem. ----------------- Hard link across subvolumes should not allowed in Btrfs. btrfs_link checks root of 'to' directory is same as root of 'from' file. If not same, btrfs_link returns -EPERM. Signed-off-by: TARUISI Hiroaki <> Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <>
