Subject: [RFC PATCH] cifs: Fix credit handling in cifs_io_subrequest cleanup
Date: Wed, 22 May 2024 23:59:02 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When a cifs_io_subrequest (wrapping a netfs_io_subrequest) is cleaned up in
cifs_free_subrequest(), it releases any credits that are left in
rdata->credits.  However, this is a problem because smb2_writev_callback()
calls add_credits() to add the new credits from the response header
CreditRequest to the available pool.

This can cause a warning to be emitted in smb2_add_credits() as
server->in_flight gets doubly decremented and a later operation sees it
having prematurely reached 0.

Fix this by clearing the credit count after actually issuing the request on
the assumption that we've given the credits back to the server (it will
give us new credits in the reply).
