Yes, we need to check whether the page contains metadata.  I remembered 
that.  I wrote the check code but removed it in this patch, because I 
didn't find a way to associate this block device with the dax page that 
contains metadata.  We can call dax_associate_entry() to create the 
association if the page's owner is a file, but it's not work for 
metadata.  I should have explained here.

Do you mean xfs_irele() ?  Sorry, I didn't realize that.  All we need is 
get the ->mapping form a given inode number.  So, I think we can call 
xfs_irele() when exiting this function.

It's my fault.  ->cookie should have been added in the next patch.  It 
stores each owner's dax entry when calling dax_lock_page() in 
memory-failure.

The offset here is assigned as iomap->addr, which is obtained from 
iomap_begin().  So that we can easily looking up for the owners of this 
offset.

I don't quite understand what you said about supporting multiple storage 
devices.  What are these devices?  Do you mean NVDIMM, HDD, SSD and others?

I think I misused these types.  Sorry for that.

Yes, it's better.  I only considered file tracking.

For the error handling part, it's really reasonable.  But we have to 
call dax_lock_page() at the beginning of memory-failure, which also need 
to iterate all the owners in order to lock their dax entries.  I think 
it not supposed to call the lock in each iteration instead of at the 
beginning.

I didn't think of fixing the storage device.  Will take it into 
consideration.

Yes, so many possible situations to consider.  For the current stage, 
just shutdown the filesystem if memory failures on metadata, and kill 
user processes if failures on normal files.  Is that OK?


Anyway, thanks for reviewing.
