  OverlayFS: Wrong mnt_id and path reported in /proc in linux-3.13

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in lxc package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am running Ubuntu Trusty (3.13.0-65-generic #106-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct
  2 22:08:27 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux).

  There are two issues in OverlayFS as follows:

   1. /proc/<pid>/fdinfo/<fd> reports wrong mnt_id (non-existent in

   2. /proc/<pid>/fd/<fd> shows incorrect path for the symlink target

  These issues were previously reported and patched for the Ubuntu Vivid
  kernel (3.19) in bug #1479468, but the patch was not applied to the
  3.13 kernel, possibly because it contains an older version of

  These issues are now adversely affecting some versions of lxc when
  used in conjunction with the 3.13 kernel, because lxc has recently
  been patched to pass /proc/<pid>/fd/<fd> to the mount syscall.  This
  change to lxc was made in response to cve-2015-1335; see bug #1476662.

  The kernel issues cause some overlayfs-backed containers to fail to
  start, with error message,

  strace: mount("/home/ubuntu/test.txt", "/proc/self/fd/16",
  0x7ffd4c3f7fdb, MS_BIND, NULL) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)

  The mount fails because /proc/self/fd/16, which should point to a file
  in overlayfs, has an invalid value.

  The version of lxc in the trusty-updates repository, lxc-1.0.7-0ubuntu0.7,
  is not affected.  The following versions of lxc are affected:

  repository                         lxc version
  ppa:ubuntu-lxc/lxc-git-stable-1.0  1.0.7+stable~20151014-2143-0ubuntu1~trusty
  ppa:ubuntu-lxc/lxc-git-stable-1.1  1.1.3+stable~20151007-2301-0ubuntu1~trusty
  ppa:ubuntu-lxc/lxc-git-master      1.1.3+master~20151012-0541-0ubuntu1~trusty

  To reproduce the lxc failure-to-start issue:

  # Install the 3.13 kernel and also an affected version of lxc.
  lxc-create -t download -n trusty -- -d ubuntu -r trusty -a amd64;
  touch $HOME/test.txt;
  echo "lxc.mount.entry = $HOME/test.txt home/ubuntu/test.txt none bind,create=file 0 0" >> $HOME/.local/share/lxc/trusty/config;
  lxc-clone -s -B overlayfs trusty trusty_overlay;
  lxc-start -n trusty_overlay; # fails to start
