Subject[PATCH] ocfs2: try a blocking lock before return AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE
Date
If we can't get inode lock immediately in the function
ocfs2_inode_lock_with_page() when reading a page, we should not
return directly here, since this will lead to a softlockup problem.
The method is to get a blocking lock and immediately unlock before
returning, this can avoid CPU resource waste due to lots of retries,
and benefits fairness in getting lock among multiple nodes, increase
efficiency in case modifying the same file frequently from multiple
nodes.
The softlockup problem looks like,
Kernel panic - not syncing: softlockup: hung tasks
CPU: 0 PID: 885 Comm: multi_mmap Tainted: G L 4.12.14-6.1-default #1
Hardware name: Bochs Bochs, BIOS Bochs 01/01/2011
