[Cluster-devel] [GFS2] Fix a page lock / glock deadlock



Hi,

We've previously been using a "try lock" in readpage on the basis that
it would prevent deadlocks due to the inverted lock ordering (our normal
lock ordering is glock first and then page lock). Unfortunately tests
have shown that this isn't enough. If the glock has a demote request
queued such that run_queue() in the glock code tries to do a demote when
its called under readpage then it will try and write out all the dirty
pages which requires locking them. This then deadlocks with the page
locked by readpage.

The solution is to always require two calls into readpage. The first
unlocks the page, gets the glock and returns AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE, the
second does the actual readpage and unlocks the glock & page as
required.
