SubjectRe: [External] Re: [PATCH] io_uring: fix the bug of child process can't do io task
Dear Jens Axboe:

Thanks for your reply. Yeah,My approach indeed has a problem as you
said. Yours is obviously better than mine.
But I think your approach is not perfect , still has a problem. Think
that same case I mentioned before, when parent
process Setup an io_uring instance with the flag of
IORING_SETUP_SQPOLL, means the sqo_thread is created,
and ctx->sqo_mm is assigned to the parent process's mm. Then the
parent process forks a child process. Of course ,
the child process inherits the fd of io_uring instance.

Then the child process submits an io task without ever context
switching into kernel. So the sqo_thead even doesn't
know whether the parent process has submit the io task or the child
one, it just use the ctx->sqo_mm as its mm,
but ctx->sqo_mm is the parent process's, not child process's, so the
problem occurred again.

Two more things:
1、I think 5.9 also has this problem -- "sqo_thread doesn't know who
has submit the io task, it will use wrong mm"

2、Attachment of this mail is the test application. If the child
process exits quickly, the problem is occured.
