Subject: [PATCH 2/4] fs: avoid double-writing the inode on a lazytime expiration
Date: Wed, 25 Mar 2020 13:28:23 +0100
Message-ID: <20200325122825.1086872-3-hch@lst.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200325122825.1086872-1-hch@lst.de>

In the case that an inode has dirty timestamp for longer than the
lazytime expiration timeout (or if all such inodes are being flushed
out due to a sync or syncfs system call), we need to inform the file
system that the inode is dirty so that the inode's timestamps can be
copied out to the on-disk data structures.  That's because if the file
system supports lazytime, it will have ignored the dirty_inode(inode,
I_DIRTY_TIME) notification when the timestamp was modified in memory.q
Previously, this was accomplished by calling mark_inode_dirty_sync(),
but that has the unfortunate side effect of also putting the inode the
writeback list, and that's not necessary in this case, since we will
immediately call write_inode() afterwards.  Replace the call to
mark_inode_dirty_sync() with a new lazytime_expired method to clearly
separate out this case.

Eric Biggers noticed that this was causing problems for fscrypt after
the key was removed[1].

Based on a patch from Theodore Ts'o.
