Subject: [PATCH v11 0/4] xfs: avoid transaction reservation recursion
Date: Tue,  8 Dec 2020 20:28:20 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201208122824.16118-1-laoar.shao@gmail.com> (raw)

PF_FSTRANS which is used to avoid transaction reservation recursion, is
dropped since commit 9070733b4efa ("xfs: abstract PF_FSTRANS to
PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS") and commit 7dea19f9ee63 ("mm: introduce
memalloc_nofs_{save,restore} API"), and replaced by PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS which
means to avoid filesystem reclaim recursion.

As these two flags have different meanings, we'd better reintroduce
PF_FSTRANS back. To avoid wasting the space of PF_* flags in task_struct,
we can reuse the current->journal_info to do that, per Willy. As the 
check of transaction reservation recursion is used by XFS only, we can 
move the check into xfs_vm_writepage(s), per Dave.

Patch #1 and #2 are to use the memalloc_nofs_{save,restore} API
Patch #1 is picked form Willy's patchset "Overhaul memalloc_no*"[1]

Patch #3 is the refactor of xfs_trans context, which is activated when
xfs_trans is allocated and deactivated when xfs_trans is freed.

Patch #4 is the implementation of reussing current->journal_info to
avoid transaction reservation recursion.

No obvious error occurred after running xfstests.

v11:
- add the warning at the callsite of xfs_trans_context_active()
- improve the commit log of patch #2

v10:
- refactor the code, per Dave.

v9:
- rebase it on xfs tree.
- Darrick fixed an error occurred in xfs/141
- run xfstests, and no obvious error occurred.

v8:
- check xfs_trans_context_active() in xfs_vm_writepage(s), per Dave.

v7:
- check fstrans recursion for XFS only, by introducing a new member in
  struct writeback_control.

v6:
- add Michal's ack and comment in patch #1. 

v5:
- pick one of Willy's patch
- introduce four new helpers, per Dave

v4:
- retitle from "xfs: introduce task->in_fstrans for transaction reservation
  recursion protection"
- reuse current->journal_info, per Willy
