Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 126/126] FS-Cache: Handle a write to the page immediately beyond the EOF marker
Date
3.16.7-ckt21 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

commit 102f4d900c9c8f5ed89ae4746d493fe3ebd7ba64 upstream.

Handle a write being requested to the page immediately beyond the EOF
marker on a cache object. Currently this gets an assertion failure in
CacheFiles because the EOF marker is used there to encode information about
a partial page at the EOF - which could lead to an unknown blank spot in
the file if we extend the file over it.

The problem is actually in fscache where we check the index of the page
being written against store_limit. store_limit is set to the number of
pages that we're allowed to store by fscache_set_store_limit() - which
means it's one more than the index of the last page we're allowed to store.
The problem is that we permit writing to a page with an index _equal_ to
the store limit - when we should reject that case.

Whilst we're at it, change the triggered assertion in CacheFiles to just
return -ENOBUFS instead.

The assertion failure looks something like this:

CacheFiles: Assertion failed
1000 < 7b1 is false
