Subject: [PATCH 0/2] mm: Fix NFS swapfiles and use DIO read for swapfiles
Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2021 12:57:41 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <162876946134.3068428.15475611190876694695.stgit@warthog.procyon.org.uk> (raw)


Hi Willy, Trond,

Here's a change to make reads from the swapfile use async DIO rather than
readpage(), as requested by Willy.

Whilst trying to make this work, I found that NFS's support for swapfiles
seems to have been non-functional since Aug 2019 (I think), so the first
patch fixes that.  Question is: do we actually *want* to keep this
functionality, given that it seems that no one's tested it with an upstream
kernel in the last couple of years?

I tested this using the procedure and program outlined in the first patch.

I also encountered occasional instances of the following warning, so I'm
wondering if there's a scheduling problem somewhere:

BUG: workqueue lockup - pool cpus=0-3 flags=0x5 nice=0 stuck for 34s!

pool 9: cpus=0-3 flags=0x5 nice=-20 hung=0s workers=2 manager: 5224 idle: 859

Note that this is due to DIO writes to NFS only, as far as I can tell, and
that no reads had happened yet.
