mm: __set_page_dirty_nobuffers() uses spin_lock_irqsave() instead of spin_lock_irq()
During aio stress test, we observed the following lockdep warning. This mean AIO+numa_balancing is currently deadlockable. The problem is, aio_migratepage disable interrupt, but __set_page_dirty_nobuffers unintentionally enable it again. Generally, all helper function should use spin_lock_irqsave() instead of spin_lock_irq() because they don't know caller at all. other info that might help us debug this: Possible unsafe locking scenario: CPU0 ---- lock(&(&ctx->completion_lock)->rlock); <Interrupt> lock(&(&ctx->completion_lock)->rlock); *** DEADLOCK *** dump_stack+0x19/0x1b print_usage_bug+0x1f7/0x208 mark_lock+0x21d/0x2a0 mark_held_locks+0xb9/0x140 trace_hardirqs_on_caller+0x105/0x1d0 trace_hardirqs_on+0xd/0x10 _raw_spin_unlock_irq+0x2c/0x50 __set_page_dirty_nobuffers+0x8c/0xf0 migrate_page_copy+0x434/0x540 aio_migratepage+0xb1/0x140 move_to_new_page+0x7d/0x230 migrate_pages+0x5e5/0x700 migrate_misplaced_page+0xbc/0xf0 do_numa_page+0x102/0x190 handle_pte_fault+0x241/0x970 handle_mm_fault+0x265/0x370 __do_page_fault+0x172/0x5a0 do_page_fault+0x1a/0x70 page_fault+0x28/0x30 Signed-off-by: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Larry Woodman <lwoodman@redhat.com> Cc: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Cc: Johannes Weiner <jweiner@redhat.com> Acked-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Cc: <stable@vger.kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
