Subject[ 069/109] nfs: skip commit in releasepage if were freeing memory for fs-related reasons
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com>

commit 5cf02d09b50b1ee1c2d536c9cf64af5a7d433f56 upstream.

We've had some reports of a deadlock where rpciod ends up with a stack
trace like this:

rpciod is trying to allocate memory for a new socket to talk to the
server. The VM ends up calling ->releasepage to get more memory, and it
tries to do a blocking commit. That commit can't succeed however without
a connected socket, so we deadlock.

Fix this by setting PF_FSTRANS on the workqueue task prior to doing the
socket allocation, and having nfs_release_page check for that flag when
deciding whether to do a commit call. Also, set PF_FSTRANS
unconditionally in rpc_async_schedule since that function can also do
allocations sometimes.
