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

You can see the related code in function filemap_fault(), if ocfs2 fails to read a page since
it can not get a inode lock with non-block mode, the VFS layer code will invoke ocfs2
read page call back function circularly, this will lead to a softlockup problem (like the below back trace).
So, we should get a blocking lock to let the dlm lock to this node and also can avoid CPU loop,
second, base on my testing, the patch also can improve the efficiency in case modifying the same
file frequently from multiple nodes, since the lock acquisition chance is more fair.
In fact, the code was modified by a patch 1cce4df04f37 ("ocfs2: do not lock/unlock() inode DLM lock"),
before that patch, the code is the same, this patch can be considered to revert that patch, except adding more
clear comments.

Thanks
Gang
