The presence of v9fs_direct_IO() in the address space ops vector
allowes open() O_DIRECT flags which would have failed otherwise.

In the non-cached mode, we shunt off direct read and write requests before
the VFS gets them, so this method should never be called.

Direct IO is not 'yet' supported in the cached mode. Hence when

Theodore Ts'o [Thu, 28 Oct 2010 01:30:13 +0000]
ext4: fix kernel oops if the journal superblock has a non-zero j_errno

Commit 84061e0 fixed an accounting bug only to introduce the
possibility of a kernel OOPS if the journal has a non-zero j_errno
field indicating that the file system had detected a fs inconsistency.
After the journal replay, if the journal superblock indicates that the
file system has an error, this indication is transfered to the file
system and then ext4_commit_super() is called to write this to the
disk.

But since the percpu counters are now initialized after the journal
replay, the call to ext4_commit_super() will cause a kernel oops since
it needs to use the percpu counters the ext4 superblock structure.

The fix is to skip setting the ext4 free block and free inode fields
if the percpu counter has not been set.

Thanks to Ken Sumrall for reporting and analyzing the root causes of
this bug.

8 years agoext4: update writeback_index based on last page scanned
Eric Sandeen [Thu, 28 Oct 2010 01:30:13 +0000]
ext4: update writeback_index based on last page scanned

As pointed out in a prior patch, updating the mapping's
writeback_index based on pages written isn't quite right;
what the writeback index is really supposed to reflect is
the next page which should be scanned for writeback during
periodic flush.

As in write_cache_pages(), write_cache_pages_da() does
this scanning for us as we assemble the mpd for later
writeout.  If we keep track of the next page after the
current scan, we can easily update writeback_index without
worrying about pages written vs. pages skipped, etc.

Without this, an fsync will reset writeback_index to
0 (its starting index) + however many pages it wrote, which
can mess up the progress of periodic flush.

Eric Sandeen [Thu, 28 Oct 2010 01:30:13 +0000]
ext4: implement writeback livelock avoidance using page tagging

This is analogous to Jan Kara's commit,
f446daaea9d4a420d16c606f755f3689dcb2d0ce
mm: implement writeback livelock avoidance using page tagging

but since we forked write_cache_pages, we need to reimplement
it there (and in ext4_da_writepages, since range_cyclic handling
was moved to there)

If you start a large buffered IO to a file, and then set
fsync after it, you'll find that fsync does not complete
until the other IO stops.

If you continue re-dirtying the file (say, putting dd
with conv=notrunc in a loop), when fsync finally completes
(after all IO is done), it reports via tracing that
it has written many more pages than the file contains;
in other words it has synced and re-synced pages in
the file multiple times.

This then leads to problems with our writeback_index
update, since it advances it by pages written, and
essentially sets writeback_index off the end of the
file...

With the following patch, we only sync as much as was
dirty at the time of the sync.

ext4: Add batched discard support for ext4

Walk through allocation groups and trim all free extents. It can be
invoked through FITRIM ioctl on the file system. The main idea is to
provide a way to trim the whole file system if needed, since some SSD's
may suffer from performance loss after the whole device was filled (it
does not mean that fs is full!).

It search for free extents in allocation groups specified by Byte range
start -> start+len. When the free extent is within this range, blocks
are marked as used and then trimmed. Afterwards these blocks are marked
as free in per-group bitmap.

Since fstrim is a long operation it is good to have an ability to
interrupt it by a signal. This was added by Dmitry Monakhov.

system batched discard support. I takes fstrim_range structure as an
argument. fstrim_range is definec in the include/fs.h and its
definition is as follows.

struct fstrim_range {
start;
len;
minlen;
}

start - first Byte to trim
len - number of Bytes to trim from start
minlen - minimum extent length to trim, free extents shorter than this
  number of Bytes will be ignored. This will be rounded up to fs
  block size.

It is also possible to specify NULL as an argument. In this case the
arguments will set itself as follows:

start = 0;
len = ULLONG_MAX;
minlen = 0;

So it will trim the whole file system at one run.

After the FITRIM is done, the number of actually discarded Bytes is stored
in fstrim_range.len to give the user better insight on how much storage
space has been really released for wear-leveling.

The reason why this hangup happens is described as follows:
1) We write the last extent block of the file whose size is the filesystem
   maximum size.
2) "BH_Delay" flag is set on the buffer_head of its block.
3) - the member, "m_lblk" of struct mpage_da_data is 4294967295 (UINT_MAX)
   - the member, "m_len" of struct mpage_da_data is 1
  mpage_put_bnr_to_bhs() which is called via ext4_da_writepages()
  cannot clear "BH_Delay" flag of the buffer_head because the type of
  m_lblk is ext4_lblk_t and then m_lblk + m_len is overflow.

  Therefore an infinite loop occurs because ext4_da_writepages()
  cannot write the page (which corresponds to the block) since
  "BH_Delay" flag isn't cleared.

8 years agoext4: improve llseek error handling for overly large seek offsets
Toshiyuki Okajima [Thu, 28 Oct 2010 01:30:06 +0000]
ext4: improve llseek error handling for overly large seek offsets

The llseek system call should return EINVAL if passed a seek offset
which results in a write error.  What this maximum offset should be
depends on whether or not the huge_file file system feature is set,
and whether or not the file is extent based or not.

If the file has no "EXT4_EXTENTS_FL" flag, the maximum size which can be
written (write systemcall) is different from the maximum size which can be
sought (lseek systemcall).

For example, the following 2 cases demonstrates the differences
between the maximum size which can be written, versus the seek offset
allowed by the llseek system call:

#1: mkfs.ext3 <dev>; mount -t ext4 <dev>
#2: mkfs.ext3 <dev>; tune2fs -Oextent,huge_file <dev>; mount -t ext4 <dev>

Table. the max file size which we can write or seek
       at each filesystem feature tuning and file flag setting
+============+===============================+===============================+
| \ File flag|                               |                               |
|      \     |     !EXT4_EXTENTS_FL          |        EXT4_EXTETNS_FL        |
|case       \|                               |                               |

|            |   seek:      17592186044415   | seek:        17592186044415   |
+------------+-------------------------------+-------------------------------+

The differences exist because ext4 has 2 maxbytes which are sb->s_maxbytes
(= extent-mapped maxbytes) and EXT4_SB(sb)->s_bitmap_maxbytes (= block-mapped
maxbytes).  Although generic_file_llseek uses only extent-mapped maxbytes.
(llseek of ext4_file_operations is generic_file_llseek which uses
sb->s_maxbytes.)

Therefore we create ext4 llseek function which uses 2 maxbytes.

The new own function originates from generic_file_llseek().
If the file flag, "EXT4_EXTENTS_FL" is not set, the function alters
inode->i_sb->s_maxbytes into EXT4_SB(inode->i_sb)->s_bitmap_maxbytes.

Lukas Czerner [Thu, 28 Oct 2010 01:30:05 +0000]
ext4: add support for lazy inode table initialization

When the lazy_itable_init extended option is passed to mke2fs, it
considerably speeds up filesystem creation because inode tables are
not zeroed out.  The fact that parts of the inode table are
uninitialized is not a problem so long as the block group descriptors,
which contain information regarding how much of the inode table has
been initialized, has not been corrupted However, if the block group
checksums are not valid, e2fsck must scan the entire inode table, and
the the old, uninitialized data could potentially cause e2fsck to
report false problems.

Hence, it is important for the inode tables to be initialized as soon
as possble.  This commit adds this feature so that mke2fs can safely
use the lazy inode table initialization feature to speed up formatting
file systems.

This is done via a new new kernel thread called ext4lazyinit, which is
created on demand and destroyed, when it is no longer needed.  There
is only one thread for all ext4 filesystems in the system. When the
first filesystem with inititable mount option is mounted, ext4lazyinit
thread is created, then the filesystem can register its request in the
request list.

This thread then walks through the list of requests picking up
scheduled requests and invoking ext4_init_inode_table(). Next schedule
time for the request is computed by multiplying the time it took to
zero out last inode table with wait multiplier, which can be set with
the (init_itable=n) mount option (default is 10).  We are doing
this so we do not take the whole I/O bandwidth. When the thread is no
longer necessary (request list is empty) it frees the appropriate
structures and exits (and can be created later later by another
filesystem).

We do not disturb regular inode allocations in any way, it just do not
care whether the inode table is, or is not zeroed. But when zeroing, we
have to skip used inodes, obviously. Also we should prevent new inode
allocations from the group, while zeroing is on the way. For that we
take write alloc_sem lock in ext4_init_inode_table() and read alloc_sem
in the ext4_claim_inode, so when we are unlucky and allocator hits the
group which is currently being zeroed, it just has to wait.

This can be suppresed using the mount option no_init_itable.

ext4: use dedicated slab caches for group_info structures

ext4_group_info structures are currently allocated with kmalloc().
With a typical 4K block size, these are 136 bytes each -- meaning
they'll each consume a 256-byte slab object.  On a system with many
ext4 large partitions, that's a lot of wasted kernel slab space.
(E.g., a single 1TB partition will have about 8000 block groups, using
about 2MB of slab, of which nearly 1MB is wasted.)

This patch creates an array of slab pointers created as needed --
depending on the superblock block size -- and uses these slabs to
allocate the group info objects.

jbd2: Fix I/O hang in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode

This fixes a hang seen in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode
on a lot of Power 6 systems running with ext4. When we get
in the hung state, all I/O to the disk in question gets blocked
where we stay indefinitely. Looking at the task list, I can see
we are stuck in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode waiting on a
wake up. I added some debug code to detect this scenario and
dump additional data if we were stuck in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode
for longer than 30 minutes. When it hit, I was able to see that
i_flags was 0, suggesting we missed the wake up.

This patch changes i_flags to be an unsigned long, uses bit operators
to access it, and adds barriers around the accesses. Prior to applying
this patch, we were regularly hitting this hang on numerous systems
in our test environment. After applying the patch, the hangs no longer
occur.
