[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 46/51] [GFS2] Data corruption fix



From: Wendy Cheng <wcheng redhat com>

* GFS2 has been using i_cache array to store its indirect meta blocks.
Its flush routine doesn't correctly clean up all the entries. The
problem would show while multiple nodes do simultaneous writes to the
same file. Upon glock exclusive lock transfer, if the file is a sparse
file with large file size where the indirect meta blocks span multiple
array entries with "zero" entries in between. The flush routine
prematurely stops the flushing that leaves old (stale) entries around.
This leads to several nasty issues, including data corruption.
* Fix gfs2_get_block_noalloc checking to correctly return EIO upon
unmapped buffer.
