Subject: [PATCH 04/15] blkcg: fix ref count issue with bio_blkcg using task_css
Date: Thu, 30 Aug 2018 21:53:45 -0400
Message-ID: <20180831015356.69796-5-dennisszhou@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180831015356.69796-1-dennisszhou@gmail.com>

From: "Dennis Zhou (Facebook)" <dennisszhou@gmail.com>

The accessor function bio_blkcg either returns the blkcg associated with
the bio or finds one in the current context. This can cause an issue
when trying to associate a bio with a blkcg. Particularly, it's the
third case that is problematic:

	return css_to_blkcg(task_css(current, io_cgrp_id));

As the above may race against task migration and the cgroup exiting, it
is not always ok to take a reference on the blkcg returned from
bio_blkcg.

This patch adds association ahead of calling bio_blkcg rather than
after. This prevents makes association a required and explicit step
along the code paths for calling bio_blkcg. blk_get_rl is modified
as well to get a reference to the blkcg it may use and blk_put_rl
will always put the reference back. Association is also moved above the
bio_blkcg call to ensure it will not return NULL in blk-iolatency.
