Subject[patch 050/100] splice: fix deadlock in splicing to file
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

upstream commit: 7bfac9ecf0585962fe13584f5cf526d8c8e76f17

There's a possible deadlock in generic_file_splice_write(),
splice_from_pipe() and ocfs2_file_splice_write():

- task A calls generic_file_splice_write()
- this calls inode_double_lock(), which locks i_mutex on both
pipe->inode and target inode
- ordering depends on inode pointers, can happen that pipe->inode is
locked first
- __splice_from_pipe() needs more data, calls pipe_wait()
- this releases lock on pipe->inode, goes to interruptible sleep
- task B calls generic_file_splice_write(), similarly to the first
- this locks pipe->inode, then tries to lock inode, but that is
already held by task A
- task A is interrupted, it tries to lock pipe->inode, but fails, as
it is already held by task B
- ABBA deadlock

Fix this by explicitly ordering locks: the outer lock must be on
target inode and the inner lock (which is later unlocked and relocked)
must be on pipe->inode. This is OK, pipe inodes and target inodes
form two nonoverlapping sets, generic_file_splice_write() and friends
are not called with a target which is a pipe.
