Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-12-06 08:12:46 UTC
Description of problem:
If the MS_BIND or MS_MOVE or MS_REMOUNT flag is used with mount, the filesystem
parameter is ignored.  The user might pass garbage (or NULL).  The printpath
call currently used to print the value then fails in umovestr.  This should be

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run code using umount with MS_BIND
Actual results:
mount("/home/drepper/tmp", "/tmp", umovestr: Input/output error
0, 0x1000, 0) = 0

Expected results:
mount("/home/drepper/tmp", "/tmp", 0, MS_BIND, 0) = 0

Additional info:
The attached patch should do the trick.

There are few more MS_* flags in the current kernel which could be
