[Cluster-devel] [PATCH] [GFS2] bz253768 (bz248480 try 2) delay glock demote for a minimum hold time



When a lot of IO, with some distributed mmap IO, is run on a GFS2 filesystem in
a cluster, it will deadlock. The reason is that do_no_page() will repeatedly
call gfs2_sharewrite_nopage(), because each node keeps giving up the glock
too early, and is forced to call unmap_mapping_range(). This bumps the
mapping->truncate_count sequence count, forcing do_no_page() to retry. This
patch institutes a minimum glock hold time a tenth a second.  This insures
that even in heavy contention cases, the node has enough time to get some
useful work done before it gives up the glock.

A second issue is that when gfs2_glock_dq() is called from within a page fault
to demote a lock, and the associated page needs to be written out, it will
try to acqire a lock on it, but it has already been locked at a higher level.
This patch puts makes gfs2_glock_dq() use the work queue as well, to avoid this
issue. This is the same patch as Steve Whitehouse originally proposed to fix
this issue, execpt that gfs2_glock_dq() now grabs a reference to the glock
before it queues up the work on it.

This still doesn't allow the tests to complete. However the remaining bug is a
known one that will be fixed once Nick Piggin's VFS interface changes have gone
in.
