ovl: perform vfs_getxattr() with mounter creds
The vfs_getxattr() in ovl_xattr_set() is used to check whether an xattr exist on a lower layer file that is to be removed. If the xattr does not exist, then no need to copy up the file. This call of vfs_getxattr() wasn't wrapped in credential override, and this is probably okay. But for consitency wrap this instance as well. Reported-by: "Eric W. Biederman" <> Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <>
