Fix the nested PR lock calling issue in ACL
Hi, Thanks a lot for all the review and comments so far;) I'd like to send the improved (V4) version of this patch. This patch fixes a deadlock in OCFS2 ACL. We found this bug in OCFS2 and Samba integration using scenario, the symptom is several smbd processes will be hung under heavy workload. Finally we found out it is the nested PR lock calling that leads to this deadlock: node1 node2 gr PR | V PR(EX)---> BAST:OCFS2_LOCK_BLOCKED | V rq PR | V wait=1 After requesting the 2nd PR lock, the process "smbd" went into D state. It can only be woken up when the 1st PR lock's RO holder equals zero. There should be an ocfs2_inode_unlock in the calling path later on, which can decrement the RO holder. But since it has been in uninterruptible sleep, the unlock function has no chance to be called. The related stack trace is: smbd D ffff8800013d0600 0 9522 5608 0x00000000 ffff88002ca7fb18 0000000000000282 ffff88002f964500 ffff88002ca7fa98 ffff8800013d0600 ffff88002ca7fae0 ffff88002f964340 ffff88002f964340 ffff88002ca7ffd8 ffff88002ca7ffd8 ffff88002f964340 ffff88002f964340 Call Trace: [<ffffffff80350425>] schedule_timeout+0x175/0x210 [<ffffffff8034f580>] wait_for_common+0xf0/0x210 [<ffffffffa03e12b9>] __ocfs2_cluster_lock+0x3b9/0xa90 [ocfs2] [<ffffffffa03e7665>] ocfs2_inode_lock_full_nested+0x255/0xdb0 [ocfs2] [<ffffffffa0446019>] ocfs2_get_acl+0x69/0x120 [ocfs2] [<ffffffffa0446368>] ocfs2_check_acl+0x28/0x80 [ocfs2] [<ffffffff800e3507>] acl_permission_check+0x57/0xb0 [<ffffffff800e357d>] generic_permission+0x1d/0xc0 [<ffffffffa03eecea>] ocfs2_permission+0x10a/0x1d0 [ocfs2] [<ffffffff800e3f65>] inode_permission+0x45/0x100 [<ffffffff800d86b3>] sys_chdir+0x53/0x90 [<ffffffff80007458>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b [<00007f34a4ef6927>] 0x7f34a4ef6927 For details, please see: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=614332 and http://oss.oracle.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1278 Signed-off-by: Jiaju Zhang <jjzhang@suse.de> Acked-by: Mark Fasheh <mfasheh@suse.com> Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Joel Becker <joel.becker@oracle.com>
