Subject[PATCH Vx 1/1] f2fs: Avoid deadlock between writeback and checkpoint
Date
From: Zhiguo Niu <zhiguo.niu@unisoc.com>

There could be a scenario as following:
The inodeA and inodeB are in b_io queue of writeback
inodeA : f2fs's node inode
inodeB : a dir inode with only one dirty pages, and the node page
of inodeB cached into inodeA

writeback:

wb_workfn
wb_writeback
blk_start_plug
loop {
queue_io
progress=__writeback_inodes_wb
__writeback_single_inode
do_writepages
f2fs_write_data_pages
wbc->pages_skipped +=get_dirty_pages
inode->i_state &= ~dirty
wrote++
requeue_inode
}
blk_finish_plug

checkpoint:

f2fs_write_checkpoint
f2fs_sync_dirty_inodes
filemap_fdatawrite
do_writepages
f2fs_write_data_pages
f2fs_write_single_data_page
f2fs_do_write_data_page
set_page_writeback
f2fs_outplace_write_data
f2fs_update_data_blkaddr
f2fs_wait_on_page_writeback
inode_dec_dirty_pages

1. Writeback thread flush inodeA, and push it's bio request in task's plug;
2. Checkpoint thread writes inodeB's dirty page, and then wait its node
page writeback cached into inodeA which is in writeback task's plug
3. Writeback thread flush inodeB and skip writing the dirty page as
wb_sync_req[DATA] > 0.
4. As none of the inodeB's page is marked as PAGECACHE_TAG_DIRTY, writeback
thread clear inodeB's dirty state.
5. Then inodeB is moved from b_io to b_dirty because of pages_skipped > 0
as checkpoint thread is stuck before dec dirty_pages.

This patch collect correct pages_skipped according to the tag state in
page tree of inode
