Subject: [PATCH FIXES/IMPROVEMENTS 7/7] block, bfq: reset waker pointer with shared queues
Date: Sat, 19 Jun 2021 16:09:48 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210619140948.98712-8-paolo.valente@linaro.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210619140948.98712-1-paolo.valente@linaro.org>

Commit 85686d0dc194 ("block, bfq: keep shared queues out of the waker
mechanism") leaves shared bfq_queues out of the waker-detection
mechanism. It attains this goal by not updating the pointer
last_completed_rq_bfqq, if the last request completed belongs to a
shared bfq_queue (so that the pointer will not point to the shared
bfq_queue).

Yet this has a side effect: the pointer last_completed_rq_bfqq keeps
pointing, deceptively, to a bfq_queue that actually is not the last
one to have had a request completed. As a consequence, such a
bfq_queue may deceptively be considered as a waker of some bfq_queue,
even of some shared bfq_queue.

To address this issue, reset last_completed_rq_bfqq if the last
request completed belongs to a shared queue.

Fixes: 85686d0dc194 ("block, bfq: keep shared queues out of the waker mechanism")
