[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 64/69] ocfs2: fix deadlock caused by ocfs2_defrag_extent()




From: Larry Chen <lchen@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit e21e57445a64598b29a6f629688f9b9a39e7242a ]

ocfs2_defrag_extent may fall into deadlock.

ocfs2_ioctl_move_extents
    ocfs2_ioctl_move_extents
      ocfs2_move_extents
        ocfs2_defrag_extent
          ocfs2_lock_allocators_move_extents

            ocfs2_reserve_clusters
              inode_lock GLOBAL_BITMAP_SYSTEM_INODE

	  __ocfs2_flush_truncate_log
              inode_lock GLOBAL_BITMAP_SYSTEM_INODE

As backtrace shows above, ocfs2_reserve_clusters() will call inode_lock
against the global bitmap if local allocator has not sufficient cluters.
Once global bitmap could meet the demand, ocfs2_reserve_cluster will
return success with global bitmap locked.

After ocfs2_reserve_cluster(), if truncate log is full,
__ocfs2_flush_truncate_log() will definitely fall into deadlock because
it needs to inode_lock global bitmap, which has already been locked.

To fix this bug, we could remove from
ocfs2_lock_allocators_move_extents() the code which intends to lock
global allocator, and put the removed code after
__ocfs2_flush_truncate_log().

ocfs2_lock_allocators_move_extents() is referred by 2 places, one is
here, the other does not need the data allocator context, which means
this patch does not affect the caller so far.
