SubjectRe: [BUG 2.4] NFS unlocking operation accesses invalid file struct
Date
Thanks, Trond.

but, your patch causes memory leak.


# gcc leak.c -o leak -lpthread
# find /usr -type f -exec ./leak {} \; &
# while true; do sleep 1; grep file_lock_cache /proc/slabinfo;done
-- leak.c --
#include <strings.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <pthread.h>

int process_B(void *arg)
{
int i, ret;
struct stat stat;
int fd = *(int *)arg;
struct flock lck;
if ((ret = fstat(fd, &stat)) < 0) {
perror("fstat");
return ret;
}
for (i = 0; i < stat.st_size/2; i++) {
lck.l_type = F_RDLCK;
lck.l_whence = 0;
lck.l_start = 2*i;
lck.l_len = 1;
if ((ret = fcntl(fd, F_SETLK, &lck)) < 0) {
perror("fcntl");
return ret;
}
}
return 0;
}
int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
int p, ret;
pthread_t tid;
p = open(argv[1], O_RDWR);
if (p < 0) {
perror("open");
exit(1);
}
pthread_create(&tid, NULL, process_B, &p);
pthread_join(tid, NULL);
if ((ret = close(p)) < 0)
perror("close");
exit(0);
}
----
it seems that your another patch could not avoid the race completely.

Cheers,
