ima: replace GFP_KERNEL with GFP_NOFS
While running fsstress tests on the NFSv4 mounted ext3 and ext4 filesystem, the following call trace was generated on the nfs server machine. Replace GFP_KERNEL with GFP_NOFS in ima_iint_insert() to avoid a potential deadlock. ================================= [ INFO: inconsistent lock state ] 2.6.31-31.el6.x86_64 #1 --------------------------------- inconsistent {RECLAIM_FS-ON-W} -> {IN-RECLAIM_FS-W} usage. kswapd2/75 [HC0[0]:SC0[0]:HE1:SE1] takes: (jbd2_handle){+.+.?.}, at: [<ffffffff811edd5e>] jbd2_journal_start+0xfe/0x13f {RECLAIM_FS-ON-W} state was registered at: [<ffffffff81091e40>] mark_held_locks+0x65/0x99 [<ffffffff81091f31>] lockdep_trace_alloc+0xbd/0xf5 [<ffffffff81126fdd>] kmem_cache_alloc+0x40/0x185 [<ffffffff812344d7>] ima_iint_insert+0x3d/0xf1 [<ffffffff812345b0>] ima_inode_alloc+0x25/0x44 [<ffffffff811484ac>] inode_init_always+0xec/0x271 [<ffffffff81148682>] alloc_inode+0x51/0xa1 [<ffffffff81148700>] new_inode+0x2e/0x94 [<ffffffff811b2f08>] ext4_new_inode+0xb8/0xdc9 [<ffffffff811be611>] ext4_create+0xcf/0x175 [<ffffffff8113e2cd>] vfs_create+0x82/0xb8 [<ffffffff8113f337>] do_filp_open+0x32c/0x9ee [<ffffffff811309b9>] do_sys_open+0x6c/0x12c [<ffffffff81130adc>] sys_open+0x2e/0x44 [<ffffffff81011e42>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b [<ffffffffffffffff>] 0xffffffffffffffff irq event stamp: 90371 hardirqs last enabled at (90371): [<ffffffff8112708d>] kmem_cache_alloc+0xf0/0x185 hardirqs last disabled at (90370): [<ffffffff81127026>] kmem_cache_alloc+0x89/0x185 softirqs last enabled at (89492): [<ffffffff81068ecf>] __do_softirq+0x1bf/0x1eb softirqs last disabled at (89477): [<ffffffff8101312c>] call_softirq+0x1c/0x30 other info that might help us debug this: 2 locks held by kswapd2/75: #0: (shrinker_rwsem){++++..}, at: [<ffffffff810f98ba>] shrink_slab+0x44/0x177 #1: (&type->s_umount_key#25){++++..}, at: [<ffffffff811450ba>] Reported-by: Muni P.
