      fuse: writepages: update bdi writeout when deleting secondary request · 41b6e41f
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      BDI_WRITTEN counter is used to estimate bdi bandwidth.  It must be
      incremented every time as bdi ends page writeback.  No matter whether it
      was fulfilled by actual write or by discarding the request (e.g. due to
      shrunk i_size).
      Note that even before writepages patches, the case "Got truncated off
      completely" was handled in fuse_send_writepage() by calling
      fuse_writepage_finish() which updated BDI_WRITTEN unconditionally.

      fuse: writepages: crop secondary requests · 6eaf4782
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      If writeback happens while fuse is in FUSE_NOWRITE condition, the request
      will be queued but not processed immediately (see fuse_flush_writepages()).
      Until FUSE_NOWRITE becomes relaxed, more writebacks can happen.  They will
      be queued as "secondary" requests to that first ("primary") request.
      Existing implementation crops only primary request.  This is not correct
      because a subsequent extending write(2) may increase i_size and then
      secondary requests won't be cropped properly.  The result would be stale
      data written to the server to a file offset where zeros must be.
      Similar problem may happen if secondary requests are attached to an
      in-flight request that was already cropped.
      The patch solves the issue by cropping all secondary requests in
      fuse_writepage_end().  Thanks to Miklos for idea.

      fuse: writepages: roll back changes if request not found · f6011081
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      fuse_writepage_in_flight() returns false if it fails to find request with
      given index in fi->writepages.  Then the caller proceeds with populating
      data->orig_pages[] and incrementing req->num_pages.  Hence,
      fuse_writepage_in_flight() must revert changes it made in request before
      returning false.

      fuse: writepage: skip already in flight · ff17be08
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      If ->writepage() tries to write back a page whose copy is still in flight,
      then just skip by calling redirty_page_for_writepage().
      This is OK, since now ->writepage() should never be called for data
      integrity sync.

      fuse: writepages: handle same page rewrites · 8b284dc4
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      As Maxim Patlasov pointed out, it's possible to get a dirty page while it's
      copy is still under writeback, despite fuse_page_mkwrite() doing its thing
      (direct IO).
      This could result in two concurrent write request for the same offset, with
      data corruption if they get mixed up.
      To prevent this, fuse needs to check and delay such writes.  This
      implementation does this by:
       1. check if page is still under writeout, if so create a new, single page
          secondary request for it
       2. chain this secondary request onto the in-flight request
       2/a. if a seconday request for the same offset was already chained to the
          in-flight request, then just copy the contents of the page and discard
          the new secondary request.  This makes sure that for each page will
          have at most two requests associated with it
       3. when the in-flight request finished, send off all secondary requests
          chained onto it

      fuse: fix race in fuse_writepages() · 2d033eaa
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      The patch fixes a race between ftruncate(2), mmap-ed write and write(2):
      1) An user makes a page dirty via mmap-ed write.
      2) The user performs shrinking truncate(2) intended to purge the page.
      3) Before fuse_do_setattr calls truncate_pagecache, the page goes to
         writeback. fuse_writepages_fill attaches a new page to FUSE_WRITE request,
         then releases the original page by end_page_writeback and unlock it.
      4) fuse_do_setattr completes and successfully returns. Since now, i_mutex
         is free.
      5) Ordinary write(2) extends i_size back to cover the page. Note that
         fuse_send_write_pages do wait for fuse writeback, but for another
      6) fuse_writepages_fill attaches more pages to the request (if any), then
         fuse_writepages_send is eventually called. It is supposed to crop
         inarg->size of the request, but it doesn't because i_size has already been
         extended back.
      Moving end_page_writeback behind fuse_writepages_send guarantees that
      __fuse_release_nowrite (called from fuse_do_setattr) will crop inarg->size
      of the request before write(2) gets the chance to extend i_size.

      fuse: readdirplus: fix RCU walk · 6314efee
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      Doing dput(parent) is not valid in RCU walk mode.  In RCU mode it would
      probably be okay to update the parent flags, but it's actually not
      necessary most of the time...
      So only set the FUSE_I_ADVISE_RDPLUS flag on the parent when the entry was
      recently initialized by READDIRPLUS.
      This is achieved by setting FUSE_I_INIT_RDPLUS on entries added by
      READDIRPLUS and only dropping out of RCU mode if this flag is set.
      FUSE_I_INIT_RDPLUS is cleared once the FUSE_I_ADVISE_RDPLUS flag is set in
      the parent.

      description of races between ftruncate and anyone who can extend i_size:
      > 1. As in the previous scenario fuse_dentry_revalidate() discovered that i_size
      > changed (due to our own fuse_do_setattr()) and is going to call

      > the time that particular truncate_pagecache() is called ...
      > 2. fuse_do_setattr() returns (either having called truncate_pagecache() or
      > not -- it doesn't matter).
      > 3. The file is extended either by write(2) or ftruncate(2) or fallocate(2).
      > 4. mmap-ed write makes a page in the extended region dirty.

      fuse: wait for writeback in fuse_file_fallocate() · bde52788
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      The patch fixes a race between mmap-ed write and fallocate(PUNCH_HOLE):
      1) An user makes a page dirty via mmap-ed write.
      2) The user performs fallocate(2) with mode == PUNCH_HOLE|KEEP_SIZE
         and <offset, size> covering the page.
      3) Before truncate_pagecache_range call from fuse_file_fallocate,
         the page goes to write-back. The page is fully processed by fuse_writepage
         (including end_page_writeback on the page), but fuse_flush_writepages did
         nothing because fi->writectr < 0.
      4) truncate_pagecache_range is called and fuse_file_fallocate is finishing
         by calling fuse_release_nowrite. The latter triggers processing queued
         write-back request which will write stale data to the hole soon.
      Changed in v2 (thanks to Brian for suggestion):
       - Do not truncate page cache until FUSE_FALLOCATE succeeded. Otherwise,
         we can end up in returning -ENOTSUPP while user data is already punched
         from page cache. Use filemap_write_and_wait_range() instead.
      Changed in v3 (thanks to Miklos for suggestion):
       - fuse_wait_on_writeback() is prone to livelocks; use fuse_set_nowrite()
         instead. So far as we need a dirty-page barrier only, fuse_sync_writes()
         should be enough.
       - rebased to for-linus branch of fuse.git

      partitions/efi: loosen check fot pmbr size in lba · 6b02fa59
      Davidlohr Bueso authored
      Matt found that commit 27a7c642 ("partitions/efi: account for pmbr
      size in lba") caused his GPT formatted eMMC device not to boot.  The
      reason is that this commit enforced Linux to always check the lesser of
      the whole disk or 2Tib for the pMBR size in LBA.  While most disk
      partitioning tools out there create a pMBR with these characteristics,
      Microsoft does not, as it always sets the entry to the maximum 32-bit
      limitation - even though a drive may be smaller than that[1].
      Loosen this check and only verify that the size is either the whole disk
      or 0xFFFFFFFF.  No tool in its right mind would set it to any value
      other than these.
