ext3/ext4: orphan list corruption due bad inode
After ext3 orphan list check has been added into ext3_destroy_inode() (please see my previous patch) the following situation has been detected: EXT3-fs warning (device sda6): ext3_unlink: Deleting nonexistent file (37901290), 0 Inode 00000101a15b7840: orphan list check failed! 00000773 6f665f00 74616d72 00000573 65725f00 06737270 66000000 616d726f ... Call Trace: [<ffffffff80211ea9>] ext3_destroy_inode+0x79/0x90 [<ffffffff801a2b16>] sys_unlink+0x126/0x1a0 [<ffffffff80111479>] error_exit+0x0/0x81 [<ffffffff80110aba>] system_call+0x7e/0x83 First messages said that unlinked inode has i_nlink=0, then ext3_unlink() adds this inode into orphan list. Second message means that this inode has not been removed from orphan list. Inode dump has showed that i_fop = &bad_file_ops and it can be set in make_bad_inode() only. Then I've found that ext3_read_inode() can call make_bad_inode() without any error/warning messages, for example in the following case: ... if (inode->i_nlink == 0) { if (inode->i_mode == 0 || !(EXT3_SB(inode->i_sb)->s_mount_state & EXT3_ORPHAN_FS)) { /* this inode is deleted */ brelse (bh); goto bad_inode; ... Bad inode can live some time, ext3_unlink can add it to orphan list, but ext3_delete_inode() do not deleted this inode from orphan list. As result we can have orphan list corruption detected in ext3_destroy_inode(). However it is not clear for me how to fix this issue correctly. As far as i see is_bad_inode() is called after iget() in all places excluding ext3_lookup() and ext3_get_parent(). I believe it makes sense to add bad inode check to these functions too and call iput if bad inode detected.
