Commit Message

Brian Foster Jan. 15, 2019, 2:09 p.m. UTC
XFS has a bug where page writeback can end up sending data to the
wrong location due to a stale, cached file mapping. Add a test to
trigger this problem by racing background writeback with a
truncate/rewrite of the final page of the file.

Signed-off-by: Brian Foster <bfoster@redhat.com>

Note again that this test is expected to occasionally fail on upstream
XFS. The fix is undergoing development and review.

Brian

v2:
- Fix up copyright header.
- Fix up _require statements and _scratch_mount* error checks.
v1: https://marc.info/?l=fstests&m=154721349921715&w=2

+# Test XFS page writeback code for races with the cached file mapping. XFS
+# caches the file -> block mapping for a full extent once it is initially looked
+# up. The cached mapping is used for all subsequent pages in the same writeback
+# cycle that cover the associated extent. Under certain conditions, it is
+# possible for concurrent operations on the file to invalidate the cached
+# mapping without the knowledge of writeback. Writeback ends up sending I/O to a
+# partly stale mapping and potentially leaving delalloc blocks in the current
+# mapping unconverted.
