Subject: [PATCH 8/8] xfs: fix locking for DAX writes
Date: Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:27:16 +0200
Message-ID: <1466609236-23801-9-git-send-email-hch@lst.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1466609236-23801-1-git-send-email-hch@lst.de>

So far DAX writes inherited the locking from direct I/O writes, but the direct
I/O model of using shared locks for writes is actually wrong for DAX.  For
direct I/O we're out of any standards and don't have to provide the Posix
required exclusion between writers, but for DAX which gets transparently
enable on applications without any knowledge of it we can't simply drop the
requirement.  Even worse this only happens for aligned writes and thus
doesn't show up for many typical use cases.
