Umm... So we either have left d_walk() without dropping rename_lock, or
we have called d_walk() from something called from d_walk()? And the
trace would seem to point towards the former...

Ouch. For that to happen, we would need to
* get to rename_retry with retry being true
* after that get D_WALK_NORETRY from enter()
* somehow get to rename_retry *again*

Moreover, we couldn't get there via
if (need_seqretry(&rename_lock, seq)) {
goto rename_retry;
- seq is 1 by that point, and need_seqretry() returns 0 in that case. IOW,
it must have been this:
* might go back up the wrong parent if we have had a rename
* or deletion
if (this_parent != child->d_parent ||
(child->d_flags & DCACHE_DENTRY_KILLED) ||
need_seqretry(&rename_lock, seq)) {
goto rename_retry;
And we had been holding rename_lock in that walk, so d_move() should've
been excluded... Which leaves us with
(child->d_flags & DCACHE_DENTRY_KILLED)
being true... Hrm. AFAICS, it *is* possible to hit that one - just have
the last reference to child dropped between
a few lines above. And yes, if that happens we are in shit - rename_retry
will see retry being false and return, without noticing that on this pass
we had been holding rename_lock. Easily fixed, fortunately - delta below
ought to take care of that...

Comments? AFAICS, it's -stable fodder, the bug going all way back to
at least 3.7...
