PF_FSTRANS which is used to avoid transaction reservation recursion, is
dropped since commit 9070733b4efa ("xfs: abstract PF_FSTRANS to
PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS") and commit 7dea19f9ee63 ("mm: introduce
memalloc_nofs_{save,restore} API") and replaced by PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS which
means to avoid filesystem reclaim recursion. That change is subtle.
Let's take the exmple of the check of WARN_ON_ONCE(current->flags &
PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS)) to explain why this abstraction from PF_FSTRANS to
PF_MEMALLOC_NOFS is not proper.

As a result, we should reintroduce PF_FSTRANS. As current->journal_info
isn't used in XFS, we can reuse it to indicate whehter the task is in
fstrans or not, Per Willy. To achieve that, some new helpers are introduce
in this patch, per Dave:
- xfs_trans_context_set()
  Used in xfs_trans_alloc()
- xfs_trans_context_clear()
  Used in xfs_trans_commit() and xfs_trans_cancel()
- xfs_trans_context_active()
  To check whehter current is in fs transcation or not

Darrick helped fix the error occurred in xfs/141.[2]

No obvious error occurred when I run xfstests in my test machine.

[1]. Below check is to avoid memory reclaim recursion.
if (WARN_ON_ONCE((current->flags & (PF_MEMALLOC|PF_KSWAPD)) ==
        PF_MEMALLOC))
        goto redirty;

So this would have given us a warning if something went wrong...

But neither of these will trigger a warning at all, so we won't know
that there's a bug in the code at all. Given this is primarily a "we
have a bug in the code" deadlock avoidance check, we really need the
noisy warnings if these fire...

From the context of this patch and the code it is replacing, I have
no idea why this condition could occur, so this needs a comment
explaining when current->journal_info is not equal to the
transaction we are freeing.

Why is this open coded and not in a helper like all the
current->journal_info manipulations? Something like
xfs_trans_context_swap(tp, ntp) with a comment explaining that it is
used to transfer the transaction context when rolling a permanent
transaction?

This refactoring should probably be a separate patch, done first.

And moving current_restore_flags_nested() into xfs_trans_free()
should also probably be a separate patch.

That way this patch is simply changing all the flags manipulations
to use the new wrappers, and not a mix of refactoring and API
rework...

Cheers,

Dave.

Sure, I will use a wrapper.
