SubjectRe: 3.0-rcX BUG at fs/btrfs/ioctl.c:432 - bisected
Hi,

a candidate fix:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/mason/btrfs-unstable.git;a=commit;h=aa0467d8d2a00e75b2bb6a56a4ee6d70c5d1928f

"
With Linus' tree, today's linux-next build (powercp ppc64_defconfig)
produced this warning:

fs/btrfs/delayed-inode.c: In function 'btrfs_delayed_update_inode':
fs/btrfs/delayed-inode.c:1598:6: warning: 'ret' may be used
uninitialized in this function
Introduced by commit 16cdcec736cd ("btrfs: implement delayed inode items
operation").

This fixes a bug in btrfs_update_inode(): if the returned value from
btrfs_delayed_update_inode is a nonzero garbage, inode stat data are not
updated and several call paths may hit a BUG_ON or fail with strange
code.
"

if you can reproduce it reliably, add this patch on top of the delayed inodes.

ioctl.c:
431 ret = btrfs_update_inode(trans, root, dir);
432 BUG_ON(ret);

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
ret, which seems to contain value of delayed_node from previous return value
(deduced from assembly):

delayed-node.c:
1600 delayed_node = btrfs_get_or_create_delayed_node(inode);
1601 if (IS_ERR(delayed_node))
1602 return PTR_ERR(delayed_node);

thanks, I think the stacktrace contains everything important. I was trying to
trigger the bugon myself when the report arrived, but did not succeed. the
issue is quite recent and seeing this report was a "cache" hit :)

Note: there are two more possibilities to hit the bugon in the ioctl: ENOMEM
and ENOENT being retunred from btrfs_update_inode, but the symptoms fit the
case described above.
