Subject[GIT PULL] Btrfs fixes for 5.19-rc7

due to a recent report [1] we need to revert the radix tree to xarray
conversion patches. There's a problem with sleeping under spinlock, when
xa_insert could allocate memory under pressure. We use GFP_NOFS so this
is a real problem that we unfortunately did not discover during review.

I'm sorry to do such change at rc6 time but the revert is IMO the safer
option, there are patches to use mutex instead of the spin locks but
that would need more testing. The revert branch has been tested on a
few setups, all seem ok. The conversion to xarray will be revisited in
the future.


Note about the xarray API:

The possible sleeping is documented next to xa_insert, however there's
no runtime check for that, like is eg. in radix_tree_preload. The
context does not need to be atomic so it's not as simple as




Some kind of development time debugging/assertion aid would be nice.
