[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 6/7] GFS2: Don't call file_accessed() with a shared glock



From: Benjamin Marzinski <bmarzins redhat com>

file_accessed() was being called by gfs2_mmap() with a shared glock. If it
needed to update the atime, it was crashing because it dirtied the inode in
gfs2_dirty_inode() without holding an exclusive lock. gfs2_dirty_inode()
checked if the caller was already holding a glock, but it didn't make sure that
the glock was in the exclusive state. Now, instead of calling file_accessed()
while holding the shared lock in gfs2_mmap(), file_accessed() is called after
grabbing and releasing the glock to update the inode.  If file_accessed() needs
to update the atime, it will grab an exclusive lock in gfs2_dirty_inode().

gfs2_dirty_inode() now also checks to make sure that if the calling process has
already locked the glock, it has an exclusive lock.
