Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 010/186] ext4: fix ext4_dax_read/write inode locking sequence for IOCB_NOWAIT
Date
From: Ritesh Harjani <riteshh@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit f629afe3369e9885fd6e9cc7a4f514b6a65cf9e9 ]

Apparently our current rwsem code doesn't like doing the trylock, then
lock for real scheme. So change our dax read/write methods to just do the
trylock for the RWF_NOWAIT case.
This seems to fix AIM7 regression in some scalable filesystems upto ~25%
in some cases. Claimed in commit 942491c9e6d6 ("xfs: fix AIM7 regression")
