Subject[PATCH BUGFIX 2/2] block, bfq: move update of waker and woken list to queue freeing
Date
Since commit 13a857a4c4e8 ("block, bfq: detect wakers and
unconditionally inject their I/O"), every bfq_queue has a pointer to a
waker bfq_queue and a list of the bfq_queues it may wake. In this
respect, when a bfq_queue, say Q, remains with no I/O source attached
to it, Q cannot be woken by any other bfq_queue, and cannot wake any
other bfq_queue. Then Q must be removed from the woken list of its
possible waker bfq_queue, and all bfq_queues in the woken list of Q
must stop having a waker bfq_queue.

Q remains with no I/O source in two cases: when the last process
associated with Q exits or when such a process gets associated with a
different bfq_queue. Unfortunately, commit 13a857a4c4e8 ("block, bfq:
detect wakers and unconditionally inject their I/O") performed the
above updates only in the first case.

This commit fixes this bug by moving these updates to when Q gets
freed. This is a simple and safe way to handle all cases, as both the
above events, process exit and re-association, lead to Q being freed
soon, and because dangling references would come out only after Q gets
freed (if no update were performed).

Fixes: 13a857a4c4e8 ("block, bfq: detect wakers and unconditionally inject their I/O")
