  • Charge loop device i/o to issuing cgroup
Related show

Commit Message

Dan Schatzberg April 28, 2020, 4:13 p.m. UTC
Existing uses of loop device may have multiple cgroups reading/writing
to the same device. Simply charging resources for I/O to the backing
file could result in priority inversion where one cgroup gets
synchronously blocked, holding up all other I/O to the loop device.

In order to avoid this priority inversion, we use a single workqueue
where each work item is a "struct loop_worker" which contains a queue of
struct loop_cmds to issue. The loop device maintains a tree mapping blk
css_id -> loop_worker. This allows each cgroup to independently make
forward progress issuing I/O to the backing file.

There is also a single queue for I/O associated with the rootcg which
can be used in cases of extreme memory shortage where we cannot allocate
a loop_worker.

The locking for the tree and queues is fairly heavy handed - we acquire
the per-loop-device spinlock any time either is accessed. The existing
implementation serializes all I/O through a single thread anyways, so I
don't believe this is any worse.
