Subject: [PATCH] nvme-multipath: fix sysfs dangerously created links
Date: Mon, 26 Feb 2018 17:51:23 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180226085123.26120-1-baegjae@gmail.com> (raw)

From: Baegjae Sung <baegjae@gmail.com>

If multipathing is enabled, each NVMe subsystem creates a head
namespace (e.g., nvme0n1) and multiple private namespaces
(e.g., nvme0c0n1 and nvme0c1n1) in sysfs. When creating links for
private namespaces, links of head namespace are used, so the
namespace creation order must be followed (e.g., nvme0n1 ->
nvme0c1n1). If the order is not followed, links of sysfs will be
incomplete or kernel panic will occur.

The kernel panic was:
  kernel BUG at fs/sysfs/symlink.c:27!
  Call Trace:
    nvme_mpath_add_disk_links+0x5d/0x80 [nvme_core]
    nvme_validate_ns+0x5c2/0x850 [nvme_core]
    nvme_scan_work+0x1af/0x2d0 [nvme_core]

Correct order
Context A     Context B
nvme0n1
nvme0c0n1     nvme0c1n1

Incorrect order
Context A     Context B
              nvme0c1n1
nvme0n1
nvme0c0n1

The function of a head namespace creation is moved to maintain the
correct order. We verified the code with or without multipathing
using three vendors of dual-port NVMe SSDs.
