This picks up where I left off in 2017, I was inclined to respin this
up again due to a new issue Lukas reported which is easy to reproduce.
I posted a stop-gap patch for that issue [0] and a test case, however,
*this* is the work we want upstream to fix these sorts of issues.

As discussed long ago though at LSFMM, we have much work to do. However,
we can take small strides to get us closer. This is trying to take one
step. It addresses most of the comments and feedback from the last
series I posted, however it doesn't address the biggest two issues:

 o provide clean and clear semantics between userspace ioctls /
   automatic fs freeze, and freeze bdev. This also involves moving the
   counter stuff from bdev to the superblock. This is pending work.
 o The loopback hack which breaks the reverse ordering isn't addressed,
   perhaps just flagging it suffices for now?
 o The long term desirable DAG *is* plausable and I have an initial
   kernel graph implementation which I could use, but that may take
   longer to merge.

What this series *does* address based on the last series is:

  o Rebased onto linux-next tag next-20210415
  o Fixed RCU complaints. The issue was that I was adding new fs levels, and
    this increated undesirably also the amount of rw semaphores, but we were
    just using the new levels to distinguish *who* was triggering the suspend,
    it was either inside the kernel and automatic, or triggered by userspace.
  o thaw_super_locked() was added but that unlocks the sb sb->s_umount,
    our exclusive reverse iterate supers however will want to hold that
    semaphore, so we provide a helper which lets the caller do the unlocking
    for you, and make thaw_super_locked() a user of that.
  o WQ_FREEZABLE is now dealt with
  o I have folded the fs freezer removal stuff into the patch which adds
    the automatic fs frezer / thaw work from the kernel as otherwise separting
    this would create intermediate steps which would produce kernels which
    can stall on suspend / resume.

Luis Chamberlain (6):
  fs: provide unlocked helper for freeze_super()
  fs: add frozen sb state helpers
  fs: add a helper for thaw_super_locked() which does not unlock
  fs: distinguish between user initiated freeze and kernel initiated
    freeze
  fs: add iterate_supers_excl() and iterate_supers_reverse_excl()
  fs: add automatic kernel fs freeze / thaw and remove kthread freezing

freeze_super() holds a write lock, however we wish to also enable
callers which already hold the write lock. To do this provide a helper
and make freeze_super() use it. This way, all that freeze_super() does
now is lock handling and active count management.

This change has no functional changes.

The question of whether or not a superblock is frozen needs to be
augmented in the future to account for differences between a user
initiated freeze and a kernel initiated freeze done automatically
on behalf of the kernel.

Provide helpers so that these can be used instead so that we don't
have to expand checks later in these same call sites as we expand
the definition of a frozen superblock.

The thaw_super_locked() expects the caller to hold the sb->s_umount
semaphore. It also handles the unlocking of the semaphore for you.
Allow for cases where the caller will do the unlocking of the semaphore.

Userspace can initiate a freeze call using ioctls. If the kernel decides
to freeze a filesystem later it must be able to distinguish if userspace
had initiated the freeze, so that it does not unfreeze it later
automatically on resume.

Likewise if the kernel is initiating a freeze on its own it should *not*
fail to freeze a filesystem if a user had already frozen it on our behalf.
This same concept applies to thawing, even if its not possible for
userspace to beat the kernel in thawing a filesystem. This logic however
has never applied to userspace freezing and thawing, two consecutive
userspace freeze calls will results in only the first one succeeding, so
we must retain the same behaviour in userspace.

This doesn't implement yet kernel initiated filesystem freeze calls,
this will be done in subsequent calls. This change should introduce
no functional changes, it just extends the definitions a frozen
filesystem to account for future kernel initiated filesystem freeze.

There are use cases where we wish to traverse the superblock list
but also capture errors, and in which case we want to avoid having
our callers issue a lock themselves since we can do the locking for
the callers. Provide a iterate_supers_excl() which calls a function
with the write lock held. If an error occurs we capture it and
propagate it.

Likewise there are use cases where we wish to traverse the superblock
list but in reverse order. The new iterate_supers_reverse_excl() helpers
does this but also also captures any errors encountered.

Add support to automatically handle freezing and thawing filesystems
during the kernel's suspend/resume cycle.

This is needed so that we properly really stop IO in flight without
races after userspace has been frozen. Without this we rely on
kthread freezing and its semantics are loose and error prone.
For instance, even though a kthread may use try_to_freeze() and end
up being frozen we have no way of being sure that everything that
has been spawned asynchronously from it (such as timers) have also
been stopped as well.

A long term advantage of also adding filesystem freeze / thawing
supporting during suspend / hibernation is that long term we may
be able to eventually drop the kernel's thread freezing completely
as it was originally added to stop disk IO in flight as we hibernate
or suspend.

This also removes all the superflous freezer calls on all filesystems
as they are no longer needed as the VFS now performs filesystem
freezing/thaw if the filesystem has support for it. The filesystem
therefore is in charge of properly dealing with quiescing of the
filesystem through its callbacks.

This also implies that many kthread users exist which have been
adding freezer semantics onto its kthreads without need. These also
will need to be reviewed later.

This is based on prior work originally by Rafael Wysocki and later by
Jiri Kosina.

The following Coccinelle rule was used as to remove the now superflous
freezer calls:

Can we take a step back and think about this a bit more?

freeze_super() has three callers:

 1) freeze_bdev
 2) ioctl_fsfreeze
 3) freeze_store (in gfs2)

The first gets its reference from get_active_super, and is the only
caller of get_active_super.  So IMHO we should just not drop the lock
in get_active_super and directly call the unlocked version.

The other two really should just call grab_super to get an active
reference and s_umount.

In other words: I don't think we need both variants, just move the
locking and s_active acquisition out of free_super.  Same for the
thaw side.

Wouldn't it be simpler to just add a new flag to signal a kernel
initiated freeze, or even better the exact reason (suspend) instead of
overloading the state machine?

Can you split that out from the main logic change?  Maybe even into one
patch per file system?

This is already done in the iterate_supers_excl and
iterate_supers_reverse_excl helpers that this helper is always called
through.

Why?

freeze_super/thaw_super already takes care of read-only file systems,
and IMHO in a better way.

I don't see how super_should_freeze needs sb_lock.  But if it does
the lock should be taken in the function.

Doesn't this need a atomic_inc_not_zero if we're racing with a delayed
unmount?

And this really needs something like deactivate_locked_super.

Huh, what is the point of sb_lock here?

I'd just fold this helper into its only caller.

Same comments as on the freeze side.

The issue with this is that once you do the changes in pm to
freeze/suspend, if you leave the other changes in for the filesystems
freeze / resume will stall, so all this needs to be an atomic operation
if we want bisectable kernels.
