Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Transient errors in Direct I/O
Date: Fri,  5 Jun 2020 15:48:35 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In current scenarios, for XFS, it would mean that a page invalidation
would end up being a writeback error. So, if iomap returns zero, fall
back to biffered I/O. XFS has never supported fallback to buffered I/O.
I hope it is not "never will" ;)

With mixed buffered and direct writes in btrfs, the pages may not be
released the extent may be locked in the ordered extents cleanup thread,
which must make changes to the btrfs trees. In case of btrfs, if it is
possible to wait, depending on the memory flags passed, wait for extent
bit to be cleared so direct I/O is executed so there is no need to
fallback to buffered I/O.
