Subject[PATCH 2/2] aio: propogate post-EIOCBQUEUED errors to completion event
Date
aio: propogate post-EIOCBQUEUED errors to completion event

This addresses an oops reported by Leonid Ananiev <leonid.i.ananiev@intel.com>
as archived at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/8/337.

O_DIRECT kicks off bios and returns -EIOCBQUEUED to indicate its intention to
call aio_complete() once the bios complete. As we return from submission we
must preserve the -EIOCBQUEUED return code so that fs/aio.c knows to let the
bio completion call aio_complete(). This stops us from returning errors after
O_DIRECT submission.

But we have a few places that are very interested in generating errors after
bio submission.

The most critical of these is invalidating the page cache after a write. This
avoids exposing stale data to buffered operations that are performed after the
O_DIRECT write succeeds. We must do this after submission because the user
buffer might have been an mmap()ed buffer of the region being written to. The
get_user_pages() in the O_DIRECT completion path could have faulted in stale
data.

So this patch introduces a helper, aio_propogate_error(), which queues
post-submission errors in the iocb so that they are given to the user
completion event when aio_complete() is finally called.

To get this working we change the aio_complete() path so that the ring
insertion is performed as the final iocb reference is dropped. This gives the
submission path time to queue its pending error before it drops its reference.
This increases the space in the iocb as it has to record the two result codes
from aio_complete() and the pending error from the submission path.

This was tested by running O_DIRECT aio-stress concurrently with buffered reads
while triggering EIO in invalidate_inode_pages2_range() with the help of a
debugfs bool hack. Previously the kernel would oops as fs/aio.c and bio
completion both called aio_complete(). With this patch aio-stress sees -EIO.
