#2158 closed bug (fixed)

BNode::WriteAttr() fails in a directory locked with BNode::Locked().

Calling BNode::WriteAttr() in a BNode that you created and locked results in you not being able to call WriteAttr() on that very same node. As I understand it, this should not happen as the Lock is to protect access from other entities and not from ourselves. :)

BTW, just a reminder that in BeOS locking the node does not prevent WriteAttr() to work.

So I found exactly where the problem lies. In vfs.cpp:

static int get_new_fd(int type, struct fs_mount *mount, struct vnode *vnode,

void *cookie, int openMode, bool kernel)


struct file_descriptor *descriptor; int fd;

if the vnode is locked, we don't allow creating a new file descriptor for it if (vnode && vnode->mandatory_locked_by != NULL)

return B_BUSY;


This is the point where it fails. I guess we should check if the vnode refers to an attribute and allow that to work.

Submitted hrev25162 which probably fixed it. Unless someone complains about this change, I will close this bug.
