SubjectOOM deadlock with NFS on 2.4.4


Hello,

we are experiencing deadlocks when running the RedHat stress test
suite. The test case is basically compiling a kernel on a file
system mounted via NFS from localhost (while this is obviously not
particularly sensible, it should nevertheless work ...), while
putting memory pressure on the system at the same time.

What happens is that all tasks go to status D (or S), all CPUs
go to the idle routine, and the system never recovers from this
state. Appended below are excerpts from a snapshot of the
deadlocked system showing the backtraces of all tasks in status D
and some other info. In the test below, the machine was running
on 2 CPUs and it took about three hours to deadlock; the deadlock
is reached sooner when running on more CPUs.

The apparent reason for the stuck system is a deadlock between
the NFS server and the MM layer (page_launder etc.):

As memory gets low, kswapd (and other tasks as well) decide to
call page_launder to free some dirty pages. This in turn causes
pages to be written to backing store. Unfortunately, the backing
store happens to reside on a NFS file system, to page_launder sends
an NFS request to the server and blocks, awaiting the reply.

The NFS server happens to run on the same machine, and in the turn
of processing the request, it needs memory. This causes page_launder
to get involved again, which causes another NFS request to be sent.
This goes on until the maximum amount of pending NFS requests is
reached.

Then, most tasks (that are not already blocked on something else)
just spin around the loop in nfs_create_request, without anybody
ever making any progress ...

Any idea how to fix this?
