Subject[PATCH 3.16 079/202] fs/dcache: Fix incorrect nr_dentry_unused accounting in shrink_dcache_sb()
3.16.66-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Waiman Long <>

commit 1dbd449c9943e3145148cc893c2461b72ba6fef0 upstream.

The nr_dentry_unused per-cpu counter tracks dentries in both the LRU
lists and the shrink lists where the DCACHE_LRU_LIST bit is set.

The shrink_dcache_sb() function moves dentries from the LRU list to a
shrink list and subtracts the dentry count from nr_dentry_unused. This
is incorrect as the nr_dentry_unused count will also be decremented in
shrink_dentry_list() via d_shrink_del().

To fix this double decrement, the decrement in the shrink_dcache_sb()
function is taken out.

Fixes: 4e717f5c1083 ("list_lru: remove special case function list_lru_dispose_all."
