[ Upstream commit 4f36cb36c9d14340bb200d2ad9117b03ce992cfe ]
The GFS2_RDF_UPTODATE flag in the rgrp is used to determine when
a rgrp buffer is valid. It's cleared when the glock is invalidated,
signifying that the buffer data is now invalid. But before this
patch, function update_rgrp_lvb was setting the flag when it
determined it had a valid lvb. But that's an invalid assumption:
just because you have a valid lvb doesn't mean you have valid
buffers. After all, another node may have made the lvb valid,
and this node just fetched it from the glock via dlm.
Consider this scenario:
1. The file system is mounted with RGRPLVB option.
2. In gfs2_inplace_reserve it locks the rgrp glock EX, but thanks
to GL_SKIP, it skips the gfs2_rgrp_bh_get.
3. Since loops == 0 and the allocation target (ap->target) is
bigger than the largest known chunk of blocks in the rgrp
(rs->rs_rbm.rgd->rd_extfail_pt) it skips that rgrp and bypasses
the call to gfs2_rgrp_bh_get there as well.
4. update_rgrp_lvb sees the lvb MAGIC number is valid, so bypasses
gfs2_rgrp_bh_get, but it still sets sets GFS2_RDF_UPTODATE due
to this invalid assumption.
5. The next time update_rgrp_lvb is called, it sees the bit is set
and just returns 0, assuming both the lvb and rgrp are both
uptodate. But since this is a smaller allocation, or space has
been freed by another node, thus adjusting the lvb values,
it decides to use the rgrp for allocations, with invalid rd_free
due to the fact it was never updated.
This patch changes update_rgrp_lvb so it doesn't set the UPTODATE
flag anymore. That way, it has no choice but to fetch the latest
