include/linux/fs.h: disable preempt when acquire i_size_seqcount write lock
Two rt tasks bind to one CPU core. The higher priority rt task A preempts a lower priority rt task B which has already taken the write seq lock, and then the higher priority rt task A try to acquire read seq lock, it's doomed to lockup. rt task A with lower priority: call write i_size_write rt task B with higher priority: call sync, and preempt task A write_seqcount_begin(&inode->i_size_seqcount); i_size_read inode->i_size = i_size; read_seqcount_begin <-- lockup here... So disable preempt when acquiring every i_size_seqcount *write* lock will cure the problem.
