[PATCH resend] block: fix inconsistent page index

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


__find_get_block_slow() and grow_buffers() use different methods to compute
a page index for a given block: __find_get_block_slow() computes it from
bd_inode->i_blkbits, while grow_buffers() computes it from the block size
The two can get out of sync, for example if bd_inode->i_blkbits is modified
while a isofs_fill_super() (in mount) is between sb_min_blocksize() and
When this happens this can result in an infinite loop in __getblk_slow(),
as grow_buffers() allocates a page but __find_get_block() keeps looking
for a different one.
I can often, but not consistently, reproduce this scenario with the
script below.
This patch changes __find_get_block_slow() to also use the block size.
It implicitly relies on size being a power of 2 in the 256..PAGE_SIZE

LOOP=`losetup -f`

rm -rf $FILE $MNT

mkdir $MNT
dd if=/dev/zero of=$FILE count=32 bs=1MiB
losetup $LOOP $FILE
mkfs -t ext4 $LOOP
while true; do losetup -D $LOOP; losetup $LOOP $FILE;done 2>&1 >/dev/null &
for ((i=0; i<100; i++)); do echo ================== $i; \
                            mount $LOOP $MNT; umount $MNT; done
