commit 6958d11f77d45db80f7e22a21a74d4d5f44dc667 upstream.

We've had rather rare reports of bmap btree block corruption where
the bmap root block has a level count of zero. The root cause of the
corruption is so far unknown. We do have verifier checks to detect
this form of on-disk corruption, but this doesn't cover a memory
corruption variant of the problem. The latter is a reasonable
possibility because the root block is part of the inode fork and can
reside in-core for some time before inode extents are read.

If this occurs, it leads to a system crash such as the following:

 BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffffff00000221
 PF error: [normal kernel read fault]
 ...
 RIP: 0010:xfs_trans_brelse+0xf/0x200 [xfs]

  do_syscall_64+0x5a/0x1d0
  entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x49/0xbe

The crash occurs because xfs_iread_extents() attempts to release an
uninitialized buffer pointer as the level == 0 value prevented the
buffer from ever being allocated or read. Change the level > 0
assert to an explicit error check in xfs_iread_extents() to avoid
crashing the kernel in the event of localized, in-core inode
corruption.

Sorry, spoke too soon, although it helps... it actually still does not
fix that exact issue. Fixing this will require a bit more work. You can
ignore this patch for stable for now.

This patch can be ingored for now for stable. It does not actually
fix the issue, just delays it a bit. Once I stress test over 1000
runs with some other fixes I have I'll send a new set of stable
fixes.

generic/388 is one of the tests we expect to uncover interesting
failures over time.  i.e. every time we fix a problem in these
tests, it will expose another issue that we haven't been able to
exercise until easier-to-hit failures have been fixed.

The best you can do right now is minimise the occurence of failures
by backporting fixes - this test (like generic/475) will continue to
uncover new shutdown and recovery issues as they are exposed by
new fixes. Expecting it to pass 1000 times without failure on an
older stable kernel is, IMO, a somewhat unrealistic expectation...

Cheers,

Dave.

What about the other 9 patch series?
