Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: Currently it is not possible to use overlayfs on top of shiftfs. This means Docker inside of LXD cannot make user of the overlay2 graph driver which is blocking users such as Travis from making use of it efficiently.

Regression Potential: Limited to shiftfs and overlayfs on top of shiftfs. Overlayfs does prevent "remote" filesystems such as ceph, nfs, etc. from being used as the underlay. With this patch shiftfs however can be used as an underlay and we special case it as a suitable filesystem to be used under overlayfs. I verified that the patch does not lead to regression on overlayfs workloads that do not make use of shiftfs as underlay. Additionally, I tested Docker with the overlay2 graphdriver on top of shiftfs. This also has not lead to any regressions.

Test case: Building a kernel with the patch:
sudo snap install lxd
sudo lxd init
sudo lxc launch images:ubuntu/bionic b1
sudo lxc config set b1 security.nesting true
sudo lxc restart --force b1
sudo lxc shell b1
sudo apt-get install \
    apt-transport-https \
    ca-certificates \
    curl \
    gnupg-agent \
    software-properties-common

curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
curl -fsSL get.docker.com | CHANNEL=test sh

sudo add-apt-repository \
   "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
   $(lsb_release -cs) \
   stable"

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io

sudo systemctl stop docker

cat <<EOF /etc/docker/daemon.json
{
  "storage-driver": "overlay2"
}
EOF

sudo systemctl start docker

docker run -it ubuntu bash

and observe that it works.

The old approach we used in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1838677 caused a regression. The reproducer for this regression appended in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1842382/comments/45 did show that the regression cannot be reproduced with the new patch.

Target kernels: All LTS kernels that do support shiftfs, if possible.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-disco' to 'verification-done-disco'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-disco' to 'verification-failed-disco'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
