Re: [dm-devel] dm thin: fix list_add corruption in process_discard



Here is an updated header with more detail:

Use pool->lock to protect pool's prepared_discards list.

Thinp's discard support (introduced via commit 104655fd4dce "dm thin:
support discards") will not work reliably without this fix because
thin_endio() can race with process_discard(), leading to concurrent
list_add() that results in the processes locking up and an initial error
like the following:

WARNING: at lib/list_debug.c:32 __list_add+0x8f/0xa0()
...
list_add corruption. next->prev should be prev (ffff880323b96140), but was ffff8801d2c48440. (next=ffff8801d2c485c0).
