SubjectRe: [Ocfs2-devel] [PATCH] ocfs2: try a blocking lock before return AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE
From
Date
Hi Gang,

Do you mean that too many retrys in loop cast losts of CPU-time and
block page-fault interrupt? We should not add any delay in
ocfs2_fault(), right? And I still feel a little confused why your
method can solve this problem.

thanks,
Jun
