ACLs are not supported, meaning their presence will force the use of the old lookup.

I cannot speak to the correctness of the whole patch, but looking over D25577, D25578, and this one, D25579, I see nothing that looks incorrect.

  • add missing seqc to ffs_write for case of clearing suid/sgid

I am not sure why clearing setuid/setgid bits on normal files (only normal files can be written to) requires blocking of lockless lookup. The bits do not affect permissions to do the lookup.

is it _begin() or _end() ?

  • fix mismatched seqc on rename error
790 ↗(On Diff #74541)

This is not necessary. It alters i_mode and I think only modifying it within seqc is a good invariant to have. However, this can be pushed way down to wrap the actual modification, I have no strong opinion.

mjg marked an inline comment as done.
  • tighten seqc coverage in write/extwrite

I think even this reduced scope is not needed.
