Subject[PATCH 4.9 246/329] fscache: Fix hanging wait on page discarded by writeback
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 2c98425720233ae3e135add0c7e869b32913502f ]

If the fscache asynchronous write operation elects to discard a page that's
pending storage to the cache because the page would be over the store limit
then it needs to wake the page as someone may be waiting on completion of
the write.

The problem is that the store limit may be updated by a different
asynchronous operation - and so may miss the write - and that the store
limit may not even get updated until later by the netfs.

Fix the kernel hang by making fscache_write_op() mark as written any pages
that are over the limit.
