Subject[PATCH 3.18 02/26] bcache: recover data from backing when data is clean
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Rui Hua <huarui.dev@gmail.com>

commit e393aa2446150536929140739f09c6ecbcbea7f0 upstream.

When we send a read request and hit the clean data in cache device, there
is a situation called cache read race in bcache(see the commit in the tail
of cache_look_up(), the following explaination just copy from there):
The bucket we're reading from might be reused while our bio is in flight,
and we could then end up reading the wrong data. We guard against this
by checking (in bch_cache_read_endio()) if the pointer is stale again;
if so, we treat it as an error (s->iop.error = -EINTR) and reread from
the backing device (but we don't pass that error up anywhere)

It should be noted that cache read race happened under normal
circumstances, not the circumstance when SSD failed, it was counted
and shown in /sys/fs/bcache/XXX/internal/cache_read_races.

Without this patch, when we use writeback mode, we will never reread from
the backing device when cache read race happened, until the whole cache
device is clean, because the condition
(s->recoverable && (dc && !atomic_read(&dc->has_dirty))) is false in
cached_dev_read_error(). In this situation, the s->iop.error(= -EINTR)
will be passed up, at last, user will receive -EINTR when it's bio end,
this is not suitable, and wield to up-application.

In this patch, we use s->read_dirty_data to judge whether the read
request hit dirty data in cache device, it is safe to reread data from
the backing device when the read request hit clean data. This can not
only handle cache read race, but also recover data when failed read
request from cache device.
