inotify: use GFP_NOFS in kernel_event() to work around a lockdep false-positive
There is what we believe to be a false positive reported by lockdep. inotify_inode_queue_event() => take inotify_mutex => kernel_event() => kmalloc() => SLOB => alloc_pages_node() => page reclaim => slab reclaim => dcache reclaim => inotify_inode_is_dead => take inotify_mutex => deadlock The plan is to fix this via lockdep annotation, but that is proving to be quite involved. The patch flips the allocation over to GFP_NFS to shut the warning up, for the 2.6.30 release. Hopefully we will fix this for real in 2.6.31. I'll queue a patch in -mm to switch it back to GFP_KERNEL so we don't forget. ================================= [ INFO: inconsistent lock state ] 2.6.30-rc2-next-20090417 #203 --------------------------------- inconsistent {RECLAIM_FS-ON-W} -> {IN-RECLAIM_FS-W} usage. kswapd0/380 [HC0[0]:SC0[0]:HE1:SE1] takes: (&inode->inotify_mutex){+.+.?.}, at: [<ffffffff8112f1b5>] inotify_inode_is_dead+0x35/0xb0 {RECLAIM_FS-ON-W} state was registered at: [<ffffffff81079188>] mark_held_locks+0x68/0x90 [<ffffffff810792a5>] lockdep_trace_alloc+0xf5/0x100 [<ffffffff810f5261>] __kmalloc_node+0x31/0x1e0 [<ffffffff81130652>] kernel_event+0xe2/0x190 [<ffffffff81130826>] inotify_dev_queue_event+0x126/0x230 [<ffffffff8112f096>] inotify_inode_queue_event+0xc6/0x110 [<ffffffff8110444d>] vfs_create+0xcd/0x140 [<ffffffff8110825d>] do_filp_open+0x88d/0xa20 [<ffffffff810f6b68>] do_sys_open+0x98/0x140 [<ffffffff810f6c50>] sys_open+0x20/0x30 [<ffffffff8100c272>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b [<ffffffffffffffff>] 0xffffffffffffffff irq event stamp: 690455 hardirqs last enabled at (690455): [<ffffffff81564fe4>] _spin_unlock_irqrestore+0x44/0x80 hardirqs last disabled at (690454): [<ffffffff81565372>] _spin_lock_irqsave+0x32/0xa0 softirqs last enabled at (690178): [<ffffffff81052282>] __do_softirq+0x202/0x220 softirqs last disabled at (690157): [<ffffffff8100d50c>] call_softirq+0x1c/0x50 other info that might help us debug this: 2 locks held by kswapd0/380: #0: (shrinker_rwsem){++++..}, at: [<ffffffff810d0bd7>] shrink_slab+0x37/0x180 #1: (&type->s_umount_key#17){++++..}, at: [<ffffffff8110cfbf>] shrink_dcache_memory+0x11f/0x1e0 stack backtrace: Pid: 380, comm: kswapd0 Not tainted 2.6.30-rc2-next-20090417 #203 Call Trace: [<ffffffff810789ef>] print_usage_bug+0x19f/0x200 [<ffffffff81018bff>] ? save_stack_trace+0x2f/0x50 [<ffffffff81078f0b>] mark_lock+0x4bb/0x6d0 [<ffffffff810799e0>] ? check_usage_forwards+0x0/0xc0 [<ffffffff8107b142>] __lock_acquire+0xc62/0x1ae0 [<ffffffff810f478c>] ? slob_free+0x10c/0x370 [<ffffffff8107c0a1>] lock_acquire+0xe1/0x120 [<ffffffff8112f1b5>] ? inotify_inode_is_dead+0x35/0xb0 [<ffffffff81562d43>] mutex_lock_nested+0x63/0x420 [<ffffffff8112f1b5>] ? inotify_inode_is_dead+0x35/0xb0 [<ffffffff8112f1b5>] ? inotify_inode_is_dead+0x35/0xb0 [<ffffffff81012fe9>] ? sched_clock+0x9/0x10 [<ffffffff81077165>] ? lock_release_holdtime+0x35/0x1c0 [<ffffffff8112f1b5>] inotify_inode_is_dead+0x35/0xb0 [<ffffffff8110c9dc>] dentry_iput+0xbc/0xe0 [<ffffffff8110cb23>] d_kill+0x33/0x60 [<ffffffff8110ce23>] __shrink_dcache_sb+0x2d3/0x350 [<ffffffff8110cffa>] shrink_dcache_memory+0x15a/0x1e0 [<ffffffff810d0cc5>] shrink_slab+0x125/0x180 [<ffffffff810d1540>] kswapd+0x560/0x7a0 [<ffffffff810ce160>] ? isolate_pages_global+0x0/0x2c0 [<ffffffff81065a30>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x40 [<ffffffff8107953d>] ? trace_hardirqs_on+0xd/0x10 [<ffffffff810d0fe0>] ? kswapd+0x0/0x7a0 [<ffffffff8106555b>] kthread+0x5b/0xa0 [<ffffffff8100d40a>] child_rip+0xa/0x20 [<ffffffff8100cdd0>] ? restore_args+0x0/0x30 [<ffffffff81065500>] ? kthread+0x0/0xa0 [<ffffffff8100d400>] ? child_rip+0x0/0x20 [eparis@redhat.com: fix audit too] Cc: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: Matt Mackall <mpm@selenic.com> Cc: Christoph Lameter <clameter@sgi.com> Signed-off-by: Wu Fengguang <fengguang.wu@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
