Fix aio_poll() races
aio_poll() has to cope with several unpleasant problems: * requests that might stay around indefinitely need to be made visible for io_cancel(2); that must not be done to a request already completed, though. * in cases when ->poll() has placed us on a waitqueue, wakeup might have happened (and request completed) before ->poll() returns. * worse, in some early wakeup cases request might end up re-added into the queue later - we can't treat "woken up and currently not in the queue" as "it's not going to stick around indefinitely" * ... moreover, ->poll() might have decided not to put it on any queues to start with, and that needs to be distinguished from the previous case * ->poll() might have tried to put us on more than one queue. Only the first will succeed for aio poll, so we might end up missing wakeups. OTOH, we might very well notice that only after the wakeup hits and request gets completed (all before ->poll() gets around to the second poll_wait()). In that case it's too late to decide that we have an error. req->woken was an attempt to deal with that. Unfortunately, it was broken. What we need to keep track of is not that wakeup has happened - the thing might come back after that. It's that async reference is already gone and won't come back, so we can't (and needn't) put the request on the list of cancellables. The easiest case is "request hadn't been put on any waitqueues"; we can tell by seeing NULL apt.head, and in that case there won't be anything async. We should either complete the request ourselves (if vfs_poll() reports anything of interest) or return an error. In all other cases we get exclusion with wakeups by grabbing the queue lock. If request is currently on queue and we have something interesting from vfs_poll(), we can steal it and complete the request ourselves. If it's on queue and vfs_poll() has not reported anything interesting, we either put it on the cancellable list, or, if we know that it hadn't been put on all queues ->poll() wanted it on, we steal it and return an error. If it's _not_ on queue, it's either been already dealt with (in which case we do nothing), or there's aio_poll_complete_work() about to be executed. In that case we either put it on the cancellable list, or, if we know it hadn't been put on all queues ->poll() wanted it on, simulate what cancel would've done. It's a lot more convoluted than I'd like it to be. Single-consumer APIs suck, and unfortunately aio is not an exception... Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
