Subject[patch 25/88] vfs: skip I_CLEAR state inodes
2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Wu Fengguang <fengguang.wu@intel.com>

upstream commit: b6fac63cc1f52ec27f29fe6c6c8494a2ffac33fd

clear_inode() will switch inode state from I_FREEING to I_CLEAR, and do so
_outside_ of inode_lock. So any I_FREEING testing is incomplete without a
coupled testing of I_CLEAR.

So add I_CLEAR tests to drop_pagecache_sb(), generic_sync_sb_inodes() and
add_dquot_ref().

Masayoshi MIZUMA discovered the bug in drop_pagecache_sb() and Jan Kara
reminds fixing the other two cases.

Masayoshi MIZUMA has a nice panic flow:

=====================================================================
[process A] | [process B]
| |
| prune_icache() | drop_pagecache()
| spin_lock(&inode_lock) | drop_pagecache_sb()
| inode->i_state |= I_FREEING; | |
| spin_unlock(&inode_lock) | V
| | | spin_lock(&inode_lock)
| V | |
| dispose_list() | |
| list_del() | |
| clear_inode() | |
| inode->i_state = I_CLEAR | |
| | | V
| | | if (inode->i_state & (I_FREEING|I_WILL_FREE))
| | | continue; <==== NOT MATCH
| | |
| | | (DANGER from here on! Accessing disposing inode!)
| | |
| | | __iget()
| | | list_move() <===== PANIC on poisoned list !!
V V |
(time)
