I have the below queued for 4.16-rc1.

Is the problem seriosu enough to push this into 4.15?If possible, please do that, since it can bring the system crash or fence in some test cases.


Should the fix be backported into -stable kernels?
Yes, I feel it can be considered as a regression problem.
Thanks a lot.

Subject: ocfs2: try a blocking lock before return AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE

If we can't get inode lock immediately in the function
ocfs2_inode_lock_with_page() when reading a page, we should not return
directly here, since this will lead to a softlockup problem when the
kernel is configured with CONFIG_PREEMPT is not set.  The method is to get
a blocking lock and immediately unlock before returning, this can avoid
CPU resource waste due to lots of retries, and benefits fairness in
getting lock among multiple nodes, increase efficiency in case modifying
the same file frequently from multiple nodes.

The softlockup crash (when set /proc/sys/kernel/softlockup_panic to 1)
looks like:

About performance improvement, we can see the testing time is reduced, and
CPU utilization decreases, the detailed data is as follows.  I ran
multi_mmap test case in ocfs2-test package in a three nodes cluster.
