Hi Linus,

Please pull this second branch containing more bug fixes for XFS for
5.18-rc1.  This branch fixes multiple problems in the reserve pool
sizing functions: an incorrect free space calculation, a pointless
infinite loop, and even more braindamage that could result in the pool
being overfilled.  The pile of patches from Dave fix myriad races and
UAF bugs in the log recovery code that much to our mutual surprise
nobody's tripped over.  Dave also fixed a performance optimization that
had turned into a regression.

Dave Chinner is taking over as XFS maintainer starting Sunday and
lasting until 5.19-rc1 is tagged so that I can focus on starting a
massive design review for the (feature complete after five years) online
repair feature.  From then on, he and I will be moving XFS to a
co-maintainership model by trading duties every other release.

NOTE: I hope very strongly that the other pieces of the (X)FS ecosystem
(fstests and xfsprogs) will make similar changes to spread their
maintenance load.

As usual, I did a test-merge with upstream master as of a few minutes
ago.  Stephen Rothwell reported a merge conflict[1] with the "drop async
cache flushes" patch, which I think you can resolve by deleting
xfs_flush_bdev_async_endio and xfs_flush_bdev_async no matter what their
contents.  At least, it worked for me.

Please let me know if you encounter any problems.  At worst, we can
rebase the branch against -rc1 and resubmit.

  xfs: drop async cache flushes from CIL commits. (2022-03-29 18:22:02 -0700)

Bug fixes for 5.18:
- Fix an incorrect free space calculation in xfs_reserve_blocks that
  could lead to a request for free blocks that will never succeed.
- Fix a hang in xfs_reserve_blocks caused by an infinite loop and the
  incorrect free space calculation.
- Fix yet a third problem in xfs_reserve_blocks where multiple racing
  threads can overfill the reserve pool.
- Fix an accounting error that lead to us reporting reserved space as
- Fix a race condition during abnormal fs shutdown that could cause UAF
  problems when memory reclaim and log shutdown try to clean up inodes.
- Fix a bug where log shutdown can race with unmount to tear down the
  log, thereby causing UAF errors.
- Disentangle log and filesystem shutdown to reduce confusion.
- Fix some confusion in xfs_trans_commit such that a race between
  transaction commit and filesystem shutdown can cause unlogged dirty
  inode metadata to be committed, thereby corrupting the filesystem.
- Remove a performance optimization in the log as it was discovered that
  certain storage hardware handle async log flushes so poorly as to
  cause serious performance regressions.  Recent restructuring of other
  parts of the logging code mean that no performance benefit is seen on
  hardware that handle it well.

Darrick J. Wong (6):
      xfs: document the XFS_ALLOC_AGFL_RESERVE constant
      xfs: don't include bnobt blocks when reserving free block pool
      xfs: remove infinite loop when reserving free block pool
      xfs: always succeed at setting the reserve pool size
      xfs: fix overfilling of reserve pool
      xfs: don't report reserved bnobt space as available

Dave Chinner (8):
      xfs: aborting inodes on shutdown may need buffer lock
      xfs: shutdown in intent recovery has non-intent items in the AIL
      xfs: run callbacks before waking waiters in xlog_state_shutdown_callbacks
      xfs: log shutdown triggers should only shut down the log
      xfs: xfs_do_force_shutdown needs to block racing shutdowns
      xfs: xfs_trans_commit() path must check for log shutdown
      xfs: shutdown during log recovery needs to mark the log shutdown
      xfs: drop async cache flushes from CIL commits.
