[PATCH 3.13 144/163] ocfs2/dlm: do not get resource spinlock if lockres is new

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Thu Oct 09 2014 - 17:06:23 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Joseph Qi <joseph.qi@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5760a97c7143c208fa3a8f8cad0ed7dd672ebd28 upstream.

There is a deadlock case which reported by Guozhonghua:

This case is caused by &res->spinlock and &dlm->master_lock
misordering in different threads.

It was introduced by commit 8d400b81cc83 ("ocfs2/dlm: Clean up refmap
helpers"). Since lockres is new, it doesn't not require the
&res->spinlock. So remove it.

Fixes: 8d400b81cc83 ("ocfs2/dlm: Clean up refmap helpers")
