Hello,

Patch 1 fixes a bug in how __writeback_single_inode() handles lazytime
expirations.  I originally reported this last year
(https://lore.kernel.org/r/20200306004555.GB225345@gmail.com) because it
causes the FS_IOC_REMOVE_ENCRYPTION_KEY ioctl to not work properly, as
the bug causes inodes to remain dirty after a sync.

It also turns out that lazytime on XFS is partially broken because it
doesn't actually write timestamps to disk after a sync() or after
dirtytime_expire_interval.  This is fixed by the same fix.

This supersedes previously proposed fixes, including
https://lore.kernel.org/r/20200307020043.60118-1-tytso@mit.edu and
https://lore.kernel.org/r/20200325122825.1086872-3-hch@lst.de from last
year (which had some issues and didn't fix the XFS bug), and v1 of this
patchset which took a different approach
(https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210105005452.92521-1-ebiggers@kernel.org).

Patches 2-11 then clean up various things related to lazytime and
writeback, such as clarifying the semantics of ->dirty_inode() and the
inode dirty flags, and improving comments.

This patchset applies to v5.11-rc2.

Changed v2 => v3:
  - Changed ext4 patch to add a helper function
    inode_is_dirtytime_only() to include/linux/fs.h.
  - Dropped XFS cleanup patch, as it can be sent/applied separately.
  - Added Reviewed-by's.

Changed v1 => v2:
  - Switched to the fix suggested by Jan Kara, and dropped the
    patches which introduced ->lazytime_expired().
  - Fixed bugs in the fat and ext4 patches.
  - Added patch "fs: improve comments for writeback_single_inode()".
  - Reordered the patches a bit.
  - Added Reviewed-by's.

Eric Biggers (11):
  fs: fix lazytime expiration handling in __writeback_single_inode()
  fs: correctly document the inode dirty flags
  fs: only specify I_DIRTY_TIME when needed in generic_update_time()
  fat: only specify I_DIRTY_TIME when needed in fat_update_time()
  fs: don't call ->dirty_inode for lazytime timestamp updates
  fs: pass only I_DIRTY_INODE flags to ->dirty_inode
  fs: clean up __mark_inode_dirty() a bit
  fs: drop redundant check from __writeback_single_inode()
  fs: improve comments for writeback_single_inode()
  gfs2: don't worry about I_DIRTY_TIME in gfs2_fsync()
  ext4: simplify i_state checks in __ext4_update_other_inode_time()

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

When lazytime is enabled and an inode is being written due to its
in-memory updated timestamps having expired, either due to a sync() or
syncfs() system call or due to dirtytime_expire_interval having elapsed,
the VFS needs to inform the filesystem so that the filesystem can copy
the inode's timestamps out to the on-disk data structures.

This is done by __writeback_single_inode() calling
mark_inode_dirty_sync(), which then calls ->dirty_inode(I_DIRTY_SYNC).

However, this occurs after __writeback_single_inode() has already
cleared the dirty flags from ->i_state.  This causes two bugs:

- mark_inode_dirty_sync() redirties the inode, causing it to remain
  dirty.  This wastefully causes the inode to be written twice.  But
  more importantly, it breaks cases where sync_filesystem() is expected
  to clean dirty inodes.  This includes the FS_IOC_REMOVE_ENCRYPTION_KEY
  ioctl (as reported at
  https://lore.kernel.org/r/20200306004555.GB225345@gmail.com), as well
  as possibly filesystem freezing (freeze_super()).

- Since ->i_state doesn't contain I_DIRTY_TIME when ->dirty_inode() is
  called from __writeback_single_inode() for lazytime expiration,
  xfs_fs_dirty_inode() ignores the notification.  (XFS only cares about
  lazytime expirations, and it assumes that i_state will contain
  I_DIRTY_TIME during those.)  Therefore, lazy timestamps aren't
  persisted by sync(), syncfs(), or dirtytime_expire_interval on XFS.

Fix this by moving the call to mark_inode_dirty_sync() to earlier in
__writeback_single_inode(), before the dirty flags are cleared from
i_state.  This makes filesystems be properly notified of the timestamp
expiration, and it avoids incorrectly redirtying the inode.

This fixes xfstest generic/580 (which tests
FS_IOC_REMOVE_ENCRYPTION_KEY) when run on ext4 or f2fs with lazytime
enabled.  It also fixes the new lazytime xfstest I've proposed, which
reproduces the above-mentioned XFS bug
(https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210105005818.92978-1-ebiggers@kernel.org).

Alternatively, we could call ->dirty_inode(I_DIRTY_SYNC) directly.  But
due to the introduction of I_SYNC_QUEUED, mark_inode_dirty_sync() is the
right thing to do because mark_inode_dirty_sync() now knows not to move
the inode to a writeback list if it is currently queued for sync.

* [PATCH v3 03/11] fs: only specify I_DIRTY_TIME when needed in generic_update_time()

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

generic_update_time() always passes I_DIRTY_TIME to
__mark_inode_dirty(), which doesn't really make sense because (a)
generic_update_time() might be asked to do only an i_version update, not
also a timestamps update; and (b) I_DIRTY_TIME is only supposed to be
set in i_state if the filesystem has lazytime enabled, so using it
unconditionally in generic_update_time() is inconsistent.

As a result there is a weird edge case where if only an i_version update
was requested (not also a timestamps update) but it is no longer needed
(i.e. inode_maybe_inc_iversion() returns false), then I_DIRTY_TIME will
be set in i_state even if the filesystem isn't mounted with lazytime.

Fix this by only passing I_DIRTY_TIME to __mark_inode_dirty() if the
timestamps were updated and the filesystem has lazytime enabled.

There is no need to call ->dirty_inode for lazytime timestamp updates
(i.e. for __mark_inode_dirty(I_DIRTY_TIME)), since by the definition of
lazytime, filesystems must ignore these updates.  Filesystems only need
to care about the updated timestamps when they expire.

Therefore, only call ->dirty_inode when I_DIRTY_INODE is set.

* [PATCH v3 06/11] fs: pass only I_DIRTY_INODE flags to ->dirty_inode

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

->dirty_inode is now only called when I_DIRTY_INODE (I_DIRTY_SYNC and/or
I_DIRTY_DATASYNC) is set.  However it may still be passed other dirty
flags at the same time, provided that these other flags happened to be
passed to __mark_inode_dirty() at the same time as I_DIRTY_INODE.

This doesn't make sense because there is no reason for filesystems to
care about these extra flags.  Nor are filesystems notified about all
updates to these other flags.

Therefore, mask the flags before passing them to ->dirty_inode.

Also properly document ->dirty_inode in vfs.rst.

Improve some comments, and don't bother checking for the I_DIRTY_TIME
flag in the case where we just cleared it.

Also, warn if I_DIRTY_TIME and I_DIRTY_PAGES are passed to
__mark_inode_dirty() at the same time, as this case isn't handled.

Some comments for writeback_single_inode() and
__writeback_single_inode() are outdated or not very helpful, especially
with regards to writeback list handling.  Update them.

* [PATCH v3 10/11] gfs2: don't worry about I_DIRTY_TIME in gfs2_fsync()

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

The I_DIRTY_TIME flag is primary used within the VFS, and there's no
reason for ->fsync() implementations to do anything with it.  This is
because when !datasync, the VFS will expire dirty timestamps before
calling ->fsync().  (See vfs_fsync_range().)  This turns I_DIRTY_TIME
into I_DIRTY_SYNC.

Therefore, change gfs2_fsync() to not check for I_DIRTY_TIME.

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

Since I_DIRTY_TIME and I_DIRTY_INODE are mutually exclusive in i_state,
there's no need to check for I_DIRTY_TIME && !I_DIRTY_INODE.  Just check
for I_DIRTY_TIME.

Also introduce a helper function in include/linux/fs.h to do this check.
