Subject[PATCH 17/17] NFS: nfs_migrate_page() does not wait for FS-Cache to finish with a page
Date
nfs_migrate_page() does not wait for FS-Cache to finish with a page, probably
leading to the following bad-page-state:

BUG: Bad page state in process python-bin pfn:17d39b

nfs_migrate_page() calls nfs_fscache_release_page() which doesn't actually wait
- even if __GFP_WAIT is set. The reason that doesn't wait is that
fscache_maybe_release_page() might deadlock the allocator as the work threads
writing to the cache may all end up sleeping on memory allocation.

However, I wonder if that is actually a problem. There are a number of things
I can do to deal with this:

(1) Make nfs_migrate_page() wait.

(2) Make fscache_maybe_release_page() honour the __GFP_WAIT flag.

(3) Set a timeout around the wait.

(4) Make nfs_migrate_page() return an error if the page is still busy.

For the moment, I'll select (2) and (4).
