[PATCH] fs,xfs: fix missed wakeup on l_flush_wait

From: Rik van Riel
Date: Tue May 07 2019 - 13:06:26 EST

The code in xlog_wait uses the spinlock to make adding the task to
the wait queue, and setting the task state to UNINTERRUPTIBLE atomic
with respect to the waker.

Doing the wakeup after releasing the spinlock opens up the following
race condition:

- add task to wait queue

- wake up task

- set task state to UNINTERRUPTIBLE

Simply moving the spin_unlock to after the wake_up_all results
in the waker not being able to see a task on the waitqueue before
it has set its state to UNINTERRUPTIBLE.

The lock ordering of taking the waitqueue lock inside the l_icloglock
is already used inside xlog_wait; it is unclear why the waker was doing
things differently.
