[PATCH 38/67] xfs: set inode sick state flags when we zap either ondisk fork

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


From: "Darrick J. Wong" <djwong@xxxxxxxxxx>

Source kernel commit: d9041681dd2f5334529a68868c9266631c384de4

In a few patches, we'll add some online repair code that tries to
massage the ondisk inode record just enough to get it to pass the inode
verifiers so that we can continue with more file repairs.  Part of that
massaging can include zapping the ondisk forks to clear errors.  After
that point, the bmap fork repair functions will rebuild the zapped

Christoph asked for stronger protections against online repair zapping a
fork to get the inode to load vs. other threads trying to access the
partially repaired file.  Do this by adding a special "[DA]FORK_ZAPPED"
inode health flag whenever repair zaps a fork, and sprinkling checks for
that flag into the various file operations for things that don't like
handling an unexpected zero-extents fork.

In practice xfs_scrub will scrub and fix the forks almost immediately
after zapping them, so the window is very small.  However, if a crash or
unmount should occur, we can still detect these zapped inode forks by
looking for a zero-extents fork when data was expected.
