Subject[RFC PATCH] locking/percpu-rwsem: use this_cpu_{inc|dec}() for read_count
Date
Under aarch64, __this_cpu_inc() is neither IRQ-safe nor atomic, so
when percpu_up_read() is invoked under IRQ-context (e.g. aio completion),
and it interrupts the process on the same CPU which is invoking
percpu_down_read(), the decreasement on read_count may lost and
the final value of read_count on the CPU will be unexpected
as shown below:

CPU 0 CPU 0

io_submit_one
__sb_start_write
percpu_down_read
__this_cpu_inc
// there is already an inflight IO, so
// reading *raw_cpu_ptr(&pcp) returns 1
// half complete, then being interrupted
*raw_cpu_ptr(&pcp)) += 1

nvme_irq
nvme_complete_cqes
blk_mq_complete_request
nvme_pci_complete_rq
nvme_complete_rq
blk_mq_end_request
blk_update_request
bio_endio
dio_bio_end_aio
aio_complete_rw
__sb_end_write
percpu_up_read
*raw_cpu_ptr(&pcp)) -= 1
// *raw_cpu_ptr(&pcp) is 0

// the decreasement is overwritten by the increasement
*raw_cpu_ptr(&pcp)) += 1
// the final value is 1 + 1 = 2 instead of 1

Fixing it by using the IRQ-safe helper this_cpu_inc|dec() for
operations on read_count.

Another plausible fix is to state that percpu-rwsem can NOT be
used under IRQ context and convert all users which may
use it under IRQ context.
