writeback: Fix lost wake-up shutting down writeback thread
Setting the task state here may cause us to miss the wake up from kthread_stop(), so we need to recheck kthread_should_stop() or risk sleeping forever in the following schedule(). Symptom was an indefinite hang on an NFSv4 mount. (NFSv4 may create multiple mounts in a temporary namespace while traversing the mount path, and since the temporary namespace is immediately destroyed, it may end up destroying a mount very soon after it was created, possibly making this race more likely.) INFO: task mount.nfs4:4314 blocked for more than 120 seconds. "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message. mount.nfs4 D 0000000000000000 2880 4314 4313 0x00000000 ffff88001ed6da28 0000000000000046 ffff88001ed6dfd8 ffff88001ed6dfd8 ffff88001ed6c000 ffff88001ed6c000 ffff88001ed6c000 ffff88001e5003a0 ffff88001ed6dfd8 ffff88001e5003a8 ffff88001ed6c000 ffff88001ed6dfd8 Call Trace: [<ffffffff8196090d>] schedule_timeout+0x1cd/0x2e0 [<ffffffff8106a31c>] ? mark_held_locks+0x6c/0xa0 [<ffffffff819639a0>] ? _raw_spin_unlock_irq+0x30/0x60 [<ffffffff8106a5fd>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_caller+0x14d/0x190 [<ffffffff819671fe>] ? sub_preempt_count+0xe/0xd0 [<ffffffff8195fc80>] wait_for_common+0x120/0x190 [<ffffffff81033c70>] ? default_wake_function+0x0/0x20 [<ffffffff8195fdcd>] wait_for_completion+0x1d/0x20 [<ffffffff810595fa>] kthread_stop+0x4a/0x150 [<ffffffff81061a60>] ? thaw_process+0x70/0x80 [<ffffffff810cc68a>] bdi_unregister+0x10a/0x1a0 [<ffffffff81229dc9>] nfs_put_super+0x19/0x20 [<ffffffff810ee8c4>] generic_shutdown_super+0x54/0xe0 [<ffffffff810ee9b6>] kill_anon_super+0x16/0x60 [<ffffffff8122d3b9>] nfs4_kill_super+0x39/0x90 [<ffffffff810eda45>] deactivate_locked_super+0x45/0x60 [<ffffffff810edfb9>] deactivate_super+0x49/0x70 [<ffffffff81108294>] mntput_no_expire+0x84/0xe0 [<ffffffff811084ef>] release_mounts+0x9f/0xc0 [<ffffffff81108575>] put_mnt_ns+0x65/0x80 [<ffffffff8122cc56>] nfs_follow_remote_path+0x1e6/0x420 [<ffffffff8122cfbf>] nfs4_try_mount+0x6f/0xd0 [<ffffffff8122d0c2>] nfs4_get_sb+0xa2/0x360 [<ffffffff810edcb8>] vfs_kern_mount+0x88/0x1f0 [<ffffffff810ede92>] do_kern_mount+0x52/0x130 [<ffffffff81963d9a>] ? _lock_kernel+0x6a/0x170 [<ffffffff81108e9e>] do_mount+0x26e/0x7f0 [<ffffffff81106b3a>] ? copy_mount_options+0xea/0x190 [<ffffffff811094b8>] sys_mount+0x98/0xf0 [<ffffffff810024d8>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b 1 lock held by mount.nfs4/4314: #0: (&type->s_umount_key#24){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffff810edfb1>] deactivate_super+0x41/0x70 Signed-off-by: J.
