From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <koct9i <at> gmail.com>
Subject: [PATCH] ovl: copy new uid/gid into overlayfs runtime inode
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.file-systems.union
Date: Sunday 31st January 2016 13:21:29 UTC (over 2 years ago)
Overlayfs must update uid/gid after chown, otherwise functions
like inode_owner_or_capable() will check user against stale uid.
Catched by xfstests generic/087, it chowns file and calls utimes.
