nilfs2: use semaphore to protect pointer to a writable FS-instance
will get rid of nilfs_get_writer() and nilfs_put_writer() pair used to retain a writable FS-instance for a period. The pair functions were making up some kind of recursive lock with a mutex, but they became overkill since the commit 201913ed746c7724a40d33ee5a0b6a1fd2ef3193. Furthermore, they caused the following lockdep warning because the mutex can be released by a task which didn't lock it: ===================================== [ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ] ------------------------------------- kswapd0/422 is trying to release lock (&nilfs->ns_writer_mutex) at: [<c1359ff5>] mutex_unlock+0x8/0xa but there are no more locks to release! other info that might help us debug this: no locks held by kswapd0/422. stack backtrace: Pid: 422, comm: kswapd0 Not tainted 2.6.31-rc4-nilfs #51 Call Trace: [<c1358f97>] ? printk+0xf/0x18 [<c104fea7>] print_unlock_inbalance_bug+0xcc/0xd7 [<c11578de>] ? prop_put_global+0x3/0x35 [<c1050195>] lock_release+0xed/0x1dc [<c1359ff5>] ? mutex_unlock+0x8/0xa [<c1359f83>] __mutex_unlock_slowpath+0xaf/0x119 [<c1359ff5>] mutex_unlock+0x8/0xa [<d1284add>] nilfs_mdt_write_page+0xd8/0xe1 [nilfs2] [<c1092653>] shrink_page_list+0x379/0x68d [<c109171b>] ? isolate_pages_global+0xb4/0x18c [<c1092bd2>] shrink_list+0x26b/0x54b [<c10930be>] shrink_zone+0x20c/0x2a2 [<c10936b7>] kswapd+0x407/0x591 [<c1091667>] ? isolate_pages_global+0x0/0x18c [<c1040603>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x33 [<c10932b0>] ? kswapd+0x0/0x591 [<c104033b>] kthread+0x69/0x6e [<c10402d2>] ? kthread+0x0/0x6e [<c1003e33>] kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x1a This patch uses a reader/writer semaphore instead of the own lock and kills this warning.
