f2fs_ioc_shutdown() ioctl gets stuck in the below path
when going down with full sync (F2FS_GOING_DOWN_FULLSYNC)
option.

__switch_to+0x90/0xc4
percpu_down_write+0x8c/0xc0
freeze_super+0xec/0x1e4
freeze_bdev+0xc4/0xcc
f2fs_ioctl+0xc0c/0x1ce0
f2fs_compat_ioctl+0x98/0x1f0

Fix this by not holding write access during this ioctl.

I think we can just remove lock coverage for F2FS_GOING_DOWN_FULLSYNC path, for
other path, we need to keep as it is.

Thanks,

Thanks, I thought about it too but then I checked that XFS shutdown ioctl is
not taking any lock for this ioctl. Hence, I followed the same in F2FS.
Do you know why XFS is not taking any lock? Is it really needed in shutdown
ioctl?

I don't know. :(

IMO, yes, we should keep freeze and remount be aware of the shutdown operation.

Thanks,

Thanks for your inputs. I will send the updated patch set.
