Subject[PATCH 3.2 67/87] ocfs2: NFS hangs in __ocfs2_cluster_lock due to race with ocfs2_unblock_lock
3.2.77-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Tariq Saeed <tariq.x.saeed@oracle.com>

commit b1b1e15ef6b80facf76d6757649dfd7295eda29f upstream.

NFS on a 2 node ocfs2 cluster each node exporting dir. The lock causing
the hang is the global bit map inode lock. Node 1 is master, has the
lock granted in PR mode; Node 2 is in the converting list (PR -> EX).
There are no holders of the lock on the master node so it should
downconvert to NL and grant EX to node 2 but that does not happen.
BLOCKED + QUEUED in lock res are set and it is on osb blocked list.
Threads are waiting in __ocfs2_cluster_lock on BLOCKED. One thread
wants EX, rest want PR. So it is as though the downconvert thread needs
to be kicked to complete the conv.

The hang is caused by an EX req coming into __ocfs2_cluster_lock on the
heels of a PR req after it sets BUSY (drops l_lock, releasing EX
thread), forcing the incoming EX to wait on BUSY without doing anything.
PR has called ocfs2_dlm_lock, which sets the node 1 lock from NL -> PR,
queues ast.

At this time, upconvert (PR ->EX) arrives from node 2, finds conflict
with node 1 lock in PR, so the lock res is put on dlm thread's dirty
listt.

After ret from ocf2_dlm_lock, PR thread now waits behind EX on BUSY till
awoken by ast.

Now it is dlm_thread that serially runs dlm_shuffle_lists, ast, bast, in
that order. dlm_shuffle_lists ques a bast on behalf of node 2 (which
will be run by dlm_thread right after the ast). ast does its part, sets
UPCONVERT_FINISHING, clears BUSY and wakes its waiters. Next,
dlm_thread runs bast. It sets BLOCKED and kicks dc thread. dc thread
runs ocfs2_unblock_lock, but since UPCONVERT_FINISHING set, skips doing
anything and reques.

Inside of __ocfs2_cluster_lock, since EX has been waiting on BUSY ahead
of PR, it wakes up first, finds BLOCKED set and skips doing anything but
clearing UPCONVERT_FINISHING (which was actually "meant" for the PR
thread), and this time waits on BLOCKED. Next, the PR thread comes out
of wait but since UPCONVERT_FINISHING is not set, it skips updating the
l_ro_holders and goes straight to wait on BLOCKED. So there, we have a
hang! Threads in __ocfs2_cluster_lock wait on BLOCKED, lock res in osb
blocked list. Only when dc thread is awoken, it will run
ocfs2_unblock_lock and things will unhang.

One way to fix this is to wake the dc thread on the flag after clearing
UPCONVERT_FINISHING
