jbd2/ocfs2: Fix block checksumming when a buffer is used in several transactions
OCFS2 uses t_commit trigger to compute and store checksum of the just committed blocks. When a buffer has b_frozen_data, checksum is computed for it instead of b_data but this can result in an old checksum being written to the filesystem in the following scenario: 1) transaction1 is opened 2) handle1 is opened 3) journal_access(handle1, bh) - This sets jh->b_transaction to transaction1 4) modify(bh) 5) journal_dirty(handle1, bh) 6) handle1 is closed 7) start committing transaction1, opening transaction2 8) handle2 is opened 9) journal_access(handle2, bh) - This copies off b_frozen_data to make it safe for transaction1 to commit. jh->b_next_transaction is set to transaction2. 10) jbd2_journal_write_metadata() checksums b_frozen_data 11) the journal correctly writes b_frozen_data to the disk journal 12) handle2 is closed - There was no dirty call for the bh on handle2, so it is never queued for any more journal operation 13) Checkpointing finally happens, and it just spools the bh via normal buffer writeback. This will write b_data, which was never triggered on and thus contains a wrong (old) checksum. This patch fixes the problem by calling the trigger at the moment data is frozen for journal commit - i.e., either when b_frozen_data is created by do_get_write_access or just before we write a buffer to the log if b_frozen_data does not exist. We also rename the trigger to t_frozen as that better describes when it is called.
