vfs_suser - check if credentials have superuser privileges for a mount
vfs_suser(struct mount *mp, struct thread *td);
The vfs_suser() function checks if the credentials given include
superuser powers for the given mount point. It will check to see if the
thread passed in has the same credentials as the user that mounted the
file system. If so, it returns 0, otherwise it returns what suser(9)
would have returned.
The vfs_suser() function returns 0 if the user has superuser powers and
EPERM otherwise. This is the reverse logic of some other implementations
of suser() in which a TRUE response indicates superuser powers.
chroot(2), jail(2), suser(9)
The vfs_suser() function was introduced in FreeBSD 5.2.
