libceph: move linger requests sooner in kick_requests()
The kick_requests() function is called by ceph_osdc_handle_map() when an osd map change has been indicated. Its purpose is to re-queue any request whose target osd is different from what it was when it was originally sent. It is structured as two loops, one for incomplete but registered requests, and a second for handling completed linger requests. As a special case, in the first loop if a request marked to linger has not yet completed, it is moved from the request list to the linger list. This is as a quick and dirty way to have the second loop handle sending the request along with all the other linger requests. Because of the way it's done now, however, this quick and dirty solution can result in these incomplete linger requests never getting re-sent as desired. The problem lies in the fact that the second loop only arranges for a linger request to be sent if it appears its target osd has changed. This is the proper handling for *completed* linger requests (it avoids issuing the same linger request twice to the same osd). But although the linger requests added to the list in the first loop may have been sent, they have not yet completed, so they need to be re-sent regardless of whether their target osd has changed. The first required fix is we need to avoid calling __map_request() on any incomplete linger request. Otherwise the subsequent __map_request() call in the second loop will find the target osd has not changed and will therefore not re-send the request. Second, we need to be sure that a sent but incomplete linger request gets re-sent. If the target osd is the same with the new osd map as it was when the request was originally sent, this won't happen. This can be fixed through careful handling when we move these requests from the request list to the linger list, by unregistering the request *before* it is registered as a linger request. This works because a side-effect of unregistering the request is to make the request's r_osd pointer be NULL, and *that* will ensure the second loop actually re-sends the linger request. Processing of such a request is done at that point, so continue with the next one once it's been moved. Signed-off-by: Alex Elder <> Reviewed-by: Sage Weil <>
