Subject: [PATCH] afs: Fix mountpoint parsing
commit 158d58335393af3956a9c06f0816ee75ed1f1447 upstream.
Each AFS mountpoint has strings that define the target to be mounted. This
is required to end in a dot that is supposed to be stripped off. The
string can include suffixes of ".readonly" or ".backup" - which are
supposed to come before the terminal dot. To add to the confusion, the "fs
lsmount" afs utility does not show the terminal dot when displaying the
The kernel mount source string parser, however, assumes that the terminal
dot marks the suffix and that the suffix is always "" and is thus ignored.
In most cases, there is no suffix and this is not a problem - but if there
is a suffix, it is lost and this affects the ability to mount the correct
The command line mount command, on the other hand, is expected not to
include a terminal dot - so the problem doesn't arise there.
Fix this by making sure that the dot exists and then stripping it when
passing the string to the mount configuration.
