commit 48cfa61b58a1fee0bc49eef04f8ccf31493b7cdd upstream.
It is possible to cause a btrfs mount to fail by racing it with a slow
umount. The crux of the sequence is generic_shutdown_super not yet
calling sop->put_super before btrfs_mount_root calls btrfs_open_devices.
If that occurs, btrfs_open_devices will decide the opened counter is
non-zero, increment it, and skip resetting fs_devices->total_rw_bytes to
0. From here, mount will call sget which will result in grab_super
trying to take the super block umount semaphore. That semaphore will be
held by the slow umount, so mount will block. Before up-ing the
semaphore, umount will delete the super block, resulting in mount's sget
reliably allocating a new one, which causes the mount path to dutifully
fill it out, and increment total_rw_bytes a second time, which causes
the mount to fail, as we see double the expected bytes.
Here is the sequence laid out in greater detail:
evict_inodes(sb); // SLOW
fs_devices = device->fs_devices
fs_info->fs_devices = fs_devices
// fs_devices-opened makes this a no-op
btrfs_open_devices(fs_devices, mode, fs_type)
s = sget(fs_type, test, set, flags, fs_info);
find sb in s_instances
down_write(&s->s_umount); // blocks
// sb->fs_devices->opened == 2; no-op
don't find sb in s_instances (deleted by CPU0)
s = alloc_super
btrfs_fill_super(s, fs_devices, data)
open_ctree // fs_devices total_rw_bytes improperly set!
read_one_dev // increment total_rw_bytes again!!
super_total_bytes < fs_devices->total_rw_bytes // ERROR!!!
To fix this, we clear total_rw_bytes from within btrfs_read_chunk_tree
before the calls to read_one_dev, while holding the sb umount semaphore
and the uuid mutex.
To reproduce, it is sufficient to dirty a decent number of inodes, then
quickly umount and mount.
for i in $(seq 0 500)
dd if=/dev/zero of="/mnt/foo/$i" bs=1M count=1
does the trick for me.
