[PATCH 4.18 088/197] f2fs: avoid race between zero_range and background GC




4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Chao Yu <yuchao0@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit c7079853c859c910b9d047a37891b4aafb8f8dd7 ]

Thread A				Background GC
- f2fs_zero_range
 - truncate_pagecache_range
					- gc_data_segment
					 - get_read_data_page
					  - move_data_page
					   - set_page_dirty
					   - set_cold_data
 - f2fs_do_zero_range
  - dn->data_blkaddr = NEW_ADDR;
  - f2fs_set_data_blkaddr

Actually, we don't need to set dirty & checked flag on the page, since
all valid data in the page should be zeroed by zero_range().

Use i_gc_rwsem[WRITE] to avoid such race condition.
