[PATCH 4.9 072/111] NFSv4.1 fix infinite loop on I/O.

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Sep 24 2018 - 08:06:29 EST

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Trond Myklebust <trondmy@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 994b15b983a72e1148a173b61e5b279219bb45ae upstream.

The previous fix broke recovery of delegated stateids because it assumes
that if we did not mark the delegation as suspect, then the delegation has
effectively been revoked, and so it removes that delegation irrespectively
of whether or not it is valid and still in use. While this is "mostly
harmless" for ordinary I/O, we've seen pNFS fail with LAYOUTGET spinning
in an infinite loop while complaining that we're using an invalid stateid
(in this case the all-zero stateid).

What we rather want to do here is ensure that the delegation is always
correctly marked as needing testing when that is the case. So we want
to close the loophole offered by nfs4_schedule_stateid_recovery(),
which marks the state as needing to be reclaimed, but not the
delegation that may be backing it.
