      VM: Fix nasty and subtle race in shared mmap'ed page writeback · 7658cc28
      Linus Torvalds authored
      
      
      The VM layer (on the face of it, fairly reasonably) expected that when
      it does a ->writepage() call to the filesystem, it would write out the
      full page at that point in time.  Especially since it had earlier marked
      the whole page dirty with "set_page_dirty()".
      
      But that isn't actually the case: ->writepage() does not actually write
      a page, it writes the parts of the page that have been explicitly marked
      dirty before, *and* that had not got written out for other reasons since
      the last time we told it they were dirty.
      
      That last caveat is the important one.
      
      Which _most_ of the time ends up being the whole page (since we had
      called "set_page_dirty()" on the page earlier), but if the filesystem
      had done any dirty flushing of its own (for example, to honor some
      internal write ordering guarantees), it might end up doing only a
      partial page IO (or none at all) when ->writepage() is actually called.
      
      That is the correct thing in general (since we actually often _want_
      only the known-dirty parts of the page to be written out), but the
      shared dirty page handling had implicitly forgotten about these details,
      and had a number of cases where it was doing just the "->writepage()"
      part, without telling the low-level filesystem that the whole page might
      have been re-dirtied as part of being mapped writably into user space.
      
      Since most of the time the FS did actually write out the full page, we
      didn't notice this for a loong time, and this needed some really odd
      patterns to trigger.  But it caused occasional corruption with rtorrent
      and with the Debian "apt" database, because both use shared mmaps to
      update the end result.
      
      This fixes it. Finally. After way too much hair-pulling.
