    Subject[PATCH 00/17] Fix assorted FS-Cache problems

    Following the mail is a series of patches to fix a number of FS-Cache problems,
    including a number of oopses. The patches can also be found at:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/fixes

    The patches are as follows:

    (*) A patch to correctly mark cached netfs pages. This fixes an oops that
    shows up in the page allocator with PG_private_2 still being set on pages.

    (*) A patch to downgrade memory allocation levels in the cache to not try so
    hard and to be more willing to abort with ENOMEM. It's a cache - it
    doesn't matter if we can't store something.

    (*) A patch to check that there are no read operations outstanding on a
    cookie when it is relinquished.

    (*) A patch to make conditional some debugging prints.

    (*) A patch to make cookie relinquishment log a warning and wait for any
    outstanding reads.

    (*) A patch to fix up operation state handling and accounting. This fixes a
    BUG in __fscache_relinquish_cookie() that occurs when cache operation
    completion gets out of sync with the netfs releasing a cookie back to

    (*) Four patches to provide proper invalidation facilities so that the netfs
    can request a cache object be invalidated rather than retiring the cookie
    it has and then getting a new one.

    The first patch provides the hooks and management in the FS-Cache module.

    The second patch splits do_sys_truncate() to create a vfs_truncate() for
    cachefiles's invalidation to call.

    The third patch makes cachefiles honour invalidation requests.

    The fourth patch makes NFS use the invalidation call.

    These fix a BUG() in __fscache_read_or_alloc_pages() that occurs when an
    object that has operations outstanding on it gets its cookie removed.

    (*) Add some missing calls to note completion of retrieval operations in
    cachefiles. These cause an assertion failure BUG in
    fscache_put_operation() when it tries to destroy an operation that is
    still live.

    (*) Three patches to clean up object event IDs in FS-Cache and to stop masking
    off bits that needn't be masked off.

    (*) A patch to limit the number of I/O errors reported on a cache to 1. This
    prevents a lot of noise being generated from a busy cache when it is

    (*) A patch to handle an unexpected state in exclusive op submission in
    FS-Cache. This fixes a BUG that occurs in fscache_submit_exclusive_op()
    if it sees the cache in an aborted state due to an I/O error having

    (*) A patch to make nfs_migrate_page() wait for FS-Cache to finish with a
    page. This fixes a bad page state BUG in the memory allocator due to NFS
    trying to migrate a page that FS-Cache is doing stuff to.

    David Howells (17):
    NFS: nfs_migrate_page() does not wait for FS-Cache to finish with a page
    FS-Cache: Exclusive op submission can BUG if there's been an I/O error
    FS-Cache: Limit the number of I/O error reports for a cache
    FS-Cache: Don't mask off the object event mask when printing it
    FS-Cache: Initialise the object event mask with the calculated mask
    FS-Cache: Convert the object event ID #defines into an enum
    CacheFiles: Add missing retrieval completions
    NFS: Use FS-Cache invalidation
    CacheFiles: Implement invalidation
    VFS: Make more complete truncate operation available to CacheFiles
    FS-Cache: Provide proper invalidation
    FS-Cache: Fix operation state management and accounting
    FS-Cache: Make cookie relinquishment wait for outstanding reads
    CacheFiles: Make some debugging statements conditional
    FS-Cache: Check that there are no read ops when cookie relinquished
    CacheFiles: Downgrade the requirements passed to the allocator
    CacheFiles: Fix the marking of cached pages
