[PATCH v3 03/21] xfs: always tail align maxlen allocations

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


From: Dave Chinner <dchinner@xxxxxxxxxx>

When we do a large allocation, the core free space allocation code
assumes that args->maxlen is aligned to args->prod/args->mod. hence
if we get a maximum sized extent allocated, it does not do tail
alignment of the extent.

However, this assumes that nothing modifies args->maxlen between the
original allocation context setup and trimming the selected free
space extent to size. This assumption has recently been found to be
invalid - xfs_alloc_space_available() modifies args->maxlen in low
space situations - and there may be more situations we haven't yet
found like this.

Force aligned allocation introduces the requirement that extents are
correctly tail aligned, resulting in this occasional latent
alignment failure to e reclassified from an unimportant curiousity
to a must-fix bug.

Removing the assumption about args->maxlen allocations always being
tail aligned is trivial, and should not impact anything because
args->maxlen for inodes with extent size hints configured are
already aligned. Hence all this change does it avoid weird corner
cases that would have resulted in unaligned extent sizes by always
trimming the extent down to an aligned size.
