In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

ext4: always panic when errors=panic is specified

Before commit 014c9caa29d3 ("ext4: make ext4_abort() use __ext4_error()"), the following series of commands would trigger a panic:

1. mount /dev/sda -o ro,errors=panic test 2. mount /dev/sda -o remount,abort test

After commit 014c9caa29d3, remounting a file system using the test mount option "abort" will no longer trigger a panic. This commit will restore the behaviour immediately before commit 014c9caa29d3. (However, note that the Linux kernel's behavior has not been consistent; some previous kernel versions, including 5.4 and 4.19 similarly did not panic after using the mount option "abort".)

This also makes a change to long-standing behaviour; namely, the following series commands will now cause a panic, when previously it did not:

1. mount /dev/sda -o ro,errors=panic test 2. echo test > /sys/fs/ext4/sda/trigger_fs_error

However, this makes ext4's behaviour much more consistent, so this is a good thing.
