Subject: [PATCH v2 27/30] fuse: Release file in process context
Date: Wed, 15 May 2019 15:27:12 -0400
Message-ID: <20190515192715.18000-28-vgoyal@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190515192715.18000-1-vgoyal@redhat.com>

fuse_file_put(sync) can be called with sync=true/false. If sync=true,
it waits for release request response and then calls iput() in the
caller's context. If sync=false, it does not wait for release request
response, frees the fuse_file struct immediately and req->end function
does the iput().

iput() can be a problem with DAX if called in req->end context. If this
is last reference to inode (VFS has let go its reference already), then
iput() will clean DAX mappings as well and send REMOVEMAPPING requests
and wait for completion. (All the the worker thread context which is
processing fuse replies from daemon on the host).

That means it blocks worker thread and it stops processing further
replies and system deadlocks.

So for now, force sync release of file in case of DAX inodes.
