block: Mitigate lock unbalance caused by lock switching
Commit 777eb1bf15b8532c396821774bf6451e563438f5 disconnects externally supplied queue_lock before blk_drain_queue(). Switching the lock would introduce lock unbalance because theads which have taken the external lock might unlock the internal lock in the during the queue drain. This patch mitigate this by disconnecting the lock after the queue draining since queue draining makes a lot of request_queue users go away. However, please note, this patch only makes the problem less likely to happen. Anyone who still holds a ref might try to issue a new request on a dead queue after the blk_cleanup_queue() finishes draining, the lock unbalance might still happen in this case. ===================================== [ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ] 3.4.0+ #288 Not tainted ------------------------------------- fio/17706 is trying to release lock (&(&q->__queue_lock)->rlock) at: [<ffffffff81329372>] blk_queue_bio+0x2a2/0x380 but there are no more locks to release! other info that might help us debug this: 1 lock held by fio/17706: #0: (&(&vblk->lock)->rlock){......}, at: [<ffffffff81327f1a>] get_request_wait+0x19a/0x250 stack backtrace: Pid: 17706, comm: fio Not tainted 3.4.0+ #288 Call Trace: [<ffffffff81329372>] ? blk_queue_bio+0x2a2/0x380 [<ffffffff810dea49>] print_unlock_inbalance_bug+0xf9/0x100 [<ffffffff810dfe4f>] lock_release_non_nested+0x1df/0x330 [<ffffffff811dae24>] ? dio_bio_end_aio+0x34/0xc0 [<ffffffff811d6935>] ? bio_check_pages_dirty+0x85/0xe0 [<ffffffff811daea1>] ? dio_bio_end_aio+0xb1/0xc0 [<ffffffff81329372>] ? blk_queue_bio+0x2a2/0x380 [<ffffffff81329372>] ? blk_queue_bio+0x2a2/0x380 [<ffffffff810e0079>] lock_release+0xd9/0x250 [<ffffffff81a74553>] _raw_spin_unlock_irq+0x23/0x40 [<ffffffff81329372>] blk_queue_bio+0x2a2/0x380 [<ffffffff81328faa>] generic_make_request+0xca/0x100 [<ffffffff81329056>] submit_bio+0x76/0xf0 [<ffffffff8115470c>] ? set_page_dirty_lock+0x3c/0x60 [<ffffffff811d69e1>] ? bio_set_pages_dirty+0x51/0x70 [<ffffffff811dd1a8>] do_blockdev_direct_IO+0xbf8/0xee0 [<ffffffff811d8620>] ? blkdev_get_block+0x80/0x80 [<ffffffff811dd4e5>] __blockdev_direct_IO+0x55/0x60 [<ffffffff811d8620>] ? blkdev_get_block+0x80/0x80 [<ffffffff811d92e7>] blkdev_direct_IO+0x57/0x60 [<ffffffff811d8620>] ? blkdev_get_block+0x80/0x80 [<ffffffff8114c6ae>] generic_file_aio_read+0x70e/0x760 [<ffffffff810df7c5>] ? __lock_acquire+0x215/0x5a0 [<ffffffff811e9924>] ? aio_run_iocb+0x54/0x1a0 [<ffffffff8114bfa0>] ? grab_cache_page_nowait+0xc0/0xc0 [<ffffffff811e82cc>] aio_rw_vect_retry+0x7c/0x1e0 [<ffffffff811e8250>] ? aio_fsync+0x30/0x30 [<ffffffff811e9936>] aio_run_iocb+0x66/0x1a0 [<ffffffff811ea9b0>] do_io_submit+0x6f0/0xb80 [<ffffffff8134de2e>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_thunk+0x3a/0x3f [<ffffffff811eae50>] sys_io_submit+0x10/0x20 [<ffffffff81a7c9e9>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b Changes since v2: Update commit log to explain how the code is still broken even if we delay the lock switching after the drain.
