Subject: [PATCH v2] iomap: avoid deadlock if memory reclaim is triggered in writepage path
Date: Thu,  4 Jun 2020 03:05:47 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1591254347-15912-1-git-send-email-laoar.shao@gmail.com> (raw)

Recently there is a XFS deadlock on our server with an old kernel.
This deadlock is caused by allocating memory in xfs_map_blocks() while
doing writeback on behalf of memroy reclaim. Although this deadlock happens
on an old kernel, I think it could happen on the upstream as well. This
issue only happens once and can't be reproduced, so I haven't tried to
reproduce it on upsteam kernel.

Bellow is the call trace of this deadlock.

Note that xfs_iomap_write_allocate() is replaced by xfs_convert_blocks() in
commit 4ad765edb02a ("xfs: move xfs_iomap_write_allocate to xfs_aops.c")
and write_cache_pages() is replaced by iomap_writepages() in
commit 598ecfbaa742 ("iomap: lift the xfs writeback code to iomap").
So for upsteam, the call trace should be,
xfs_vm_writepages
  -> iomap_writepages
     -> write_cache_pages
        -> iomap_do_writepage
           -> xfs_map_blocks
              -> xfs_convert_blocks
                 -> xfs_bmapi_convert_delalloc
                    -> xfs_trans_alloc //It should alloc page with GFP_NOFS

v1 - >v2:
- retile the subject from "xfs: avoid deadlock when tigger memory reclam in xfs_map_blocks()"
- set GFP_NOFS in iomap_do_writepage(), per Dave.
