debugfs_remove_recursive() is wrong,
1. it wrongly assumes that !list_empty(d_subdirs) means that this
dir should be removed.
This is not that bad by itself, but:
2. if d_subdirs does not becomes empty after __debugfs_remove()
it gives up and silently fails, it doesn't even try to remove
However ->d_subdirs can be non-empty because it still has the
already deleted !debugfs_positive() entries.
3. simple_release_fs() is called even if __debugfs_remove() fails.
Suppose we have
and someone opens dir1/dir2/file2.
Now, debugfs_remove_recursive(dir1/dir2) succeeds, and dir1/dir2 goes
But debugfs_remove_recursive(dir1) silently fails and doesn't remove
this directory. Because it tries to delete (the already deleted)
dir1/dir2/file2 again and then fails due to "Avoid infinite loop"
echo 'p:probe/sigprocmask sigprocmask' >> kprobe_events
sleep 1000 < events/probe/sigprocmask/id &
echo -n >| kprobe_events
[ -d events/probe ] && echo "ERR!! failed to rm probe"
And after that it is not possible to create another probe entry.
With this patch debugfs_remove_recursive() skips !debugfs_positive()
files although this is not strictly needed. The most important change
is that it does not try to make ->d_subdirs empty, it simply scans
the whole list(s) recursively and removes as much as possible.
