Subject[PATCH 4.9 034/109] dax: Avoid page invalidation races and unnecessary radix tree traversals
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>


[ Upstream commit e3fce68cdbed297d927e993b3ea7b8b1cee545da ]

Currently dax_iomap_rw() takes care of invalidating page tables and
evicting hole pages from the radix tree when write(2) to the file
happens. This invalidation is only necessary when there is some block
allocation resulting from write(2). Furthermore in current place the
invalidation is racy wrt page fault instantiating a hole page just after
we have invalidated it.

So perform the page invalidation inside dax_iomap_actor() where we can
do it only when really necessary and after blocks have been allocated so
nobody will be instantiating new hole pages anymore.
