SubjectRe: [PATCH] mm: fix page_mkclean_one (was: 2.6.19 file content corruption on ext3)

Ok, I'll just put my money where my mouth is, and suggest a patch like
THIS instead.

This one clears up all the issues I find irritating:

- "test_clear_page_dirty()" is insane, both conceptually and as an
implementation. "Give me a 'C', give me an 'R', give me an 'A', give me
a 'P'".

So rip out that mindfart entirely.

- "clear_page_dirty()" is badly named, and should be about CANCELLING the
dirty bit, and must never be called with pages mapped anyway. So throw
that out too, and replace it with a new function:

void cancel_dirty_page(struct page *page, unsigned int accounting_size);

- "clear_page_dirty_for_io()" is fine.

And with that, I then either rip out any old users of
"test_clear_page_dirty()" or "clear_page_dirty()", and if appropriate (and
it's realy lonly appropriate for "truncate()", I replace them with the new
"cancel_dirty_page()". Most of the time, they should just be deleted
entirely.

NOTE NOTE NOTE! I _only_ did enough to make things compile for my
particular configuration. That means that right now the following
filesystems are broken with this patch (because they use the totally
broken old crap):

CIFS, FUSE, JFS, ReiserFS, XFS

and I don't know exactly what they need to be fixed. But most likely their
usage was insane and pointless anyway (looking at the ReiserFS case, for
example, that was DEFINITELY the case. I can't even imagine what the heck
it thinks it is doing).

Anyway, I'm not at all guaranteeing that this solves anything at all. I
_do_ guarantee that this is a h*ll of a lot saner than what we had before.

[ This also includes a few of my older patches, I didn't bother to sort
them out, and the fs/buffer.c patch is required because it got rid of
one of the insane uses of test_clear_page_dirty().

So this goes directly on top of current -git, with no other changes in
the tree. ]

Nick, Hugh, Peter, Andrew? Comments?

Martin, Andrei, does this make any difference for your corruption cases?
