Subject[PATCH 2/2] NFS: Fix RCU warnings in nfs_inode_return_delegation_noreclaim()
Date
Fix a number of RCU warnings in nfs_inode_return_delegation_noreclaim().
nfs_inode_return_delegation_noreclaim() and nfs_inode_return_delegation() don't
need to use rcu_dereference() outside the spinlocked region as they merely
examin the pointer and don't follow it, thus rendering unnecessary the need to
impose a partial ordering over the one item of interest.

nfs_detach_delegation_locked() doesn't need rcu_derefence() because it can only
be called if nfs_client::cl_lock is held, and that guards against anyone
changing nfsi->delegation under it. Furthermore, the barrier in
rcu_derefence() is superfluous, given that the spin_lock() is also a barrier.

nfs_free_delegation() should be using rcu_dereference_check() to validate the
state that the data is in (the delegation inode must have been cleared). By
this point, the delegation is being released, so no one else should be
attempting to use the saved credentials, and they can be cleared. However,
rcu_assign_pointer() should be used to clear them, and the delegation itself
must still use call_rcu() as the list of delegations could be being traversed.


[ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
