NFS: Use i_writecount to control whether to get an fscache cookie in nfs_open()
Use i_writecount to control whether to get an fscache cookie in nfs_open() as NFS does not do write caching yet. I *think* this is the cause of a problem encountered by Mark Moseley whereby __fscache_uncache_page() gets a NULL pointer dereference because cookie->def is NULL: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000010 IP: [<ffffffff812a1903>] __fscache_uncache_page+0x23/0x160 PGD 0 Thread overran stack, or stack corrupted Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP Modules linked in: ...

So cookie->def is NULL - which presumably means that the cookie has already been at least partway through __fscache_relinquish_cookie(). What I think may be happening is something like a three-way race on the same file: PROCESS 1 PROCESS 2 PROCESS 3 =============== =============== =============== open(O_TRUNC|O_WRONLY) open(O_RDONLY) open(O_WRONLY) -->nfs_open() -->nfs_fscache_set_inode_cookie() nfs_fscache_inode_lock() nfs_fscache_disable_inode_cookie() __fscache_relinquish_cookie() nfs_inode->fscache = NULL <--nfs_fscache_set_inode_cookie() -->nfs_open() -->nfs_fscache_set_inode_cookie() nfs_fscache_inode_lock() nfs_fscache_enable_inode_cookie() __fscache_acquire_cookie() nfs_inode->fscache = cookie <--nfs_fscache_set_inode_cookie() <--nfs_open() -->nfs_setattr() ... ... -->nfs_invalidate_page() -->__nfs_fscache_invalidate_page() cookie = nfsi->fscache -->nfs_open() -->nfs_fscache_set_inode_cookie() nfs_fscache_inode_lock() nfs_fscache_disable_inode_cookie() -->__fscache_relinquish_cookie() -->__fscache_uncache_page(cookie) <crash> <--__fscache_relinquish_cookie() nfs_inode->fscache = NULL <--nfs_fscache_set_inode_cookie() What is needed is something to prevent process #2 from reacquiring the cookie - and I think checking i_writecount should do the trick. It's also possible to have a two-way race on this if the file is opened O_TRUNC|O_RDONLY instead. Reported-by: Mark Moseley <moseleymark@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
