           Summary: Move restrict_chown to mount-time option
           Product: Linux XFS
           Version: Current
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: XFS kernel code
        AssignedTo: xfs-master@xxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: nick.couchman@xxxxxxxxx

We've run into a situation where it would be extremely advantageous to be able
to restrict_chown on certain volumes on a server but not on others.  I'm not
real familiar with kernel internals, programming, etc., but I'd like to suggest
that restrict_chown be made a mount option for an XFS filesystem instead of a
system-wide, sysctl/proc option.  This would allow finer control over which
filesystems restrict giving away files and which don't.

Thanks - Nick
