xfs: fix race condition in AIL push trigger

The recent conversion of the xfsaild functionality to a work queue
introduced a hard-to-hit log space grant hang. One is caused by a
race condition in determining whether there is a psh in progress or
not.

The XFS_AIL_PUSHING_BIT is used to determine whether a push is
currently in progress.  When the AIL push work completes, it checked
whether the target changed and cleared the PUSHING bit to allow a
new push to be requeued. The race condition is as follows:

Thread 1 push work

smp_wmb()
smp_rmb()
check ailp->xa_target unchanged
update ailp->xa_target
test/set PUSHING bit
does not queue
clear PUSHING bit
does not requeue

Now that the push target is updated, new attempts to push the AIL
will not trigger as the push target will be the same, and hence
despite trying to push the AIL we won't ever wake it again.

The fix is to ensure that the AIL push work clears the PUSHING bit
before it checks if the target is unchanged.

As a result, both push triggers operate on the same test/set bit
criteria, so even if we race in the push work and miss the target
update, the thread requesting the push will still set the PUSHING
bit and queue the push work to occur. For safety sake, the same
queue check is done if the push work detects the target change,
though only one of the two will will queue new work due to the use
of test_and_set_bit() checks.

have to mark every transaction with blocks that get reused as synchronous.

Instead of searching the busy extent list after deciding on the extent to
allocate, check each candidate extent during the allocation decisions as
to whether they are in the busy list.  If they are in the busy list, we
trim the busy range out of the extent we have found and determine if that
trimmed range is still OK for allocation. In many cases, this check can
be incorporated into the allocation extent alignment code which already
does trimming of the found extent before determining if it is a valid

protects against this by skipping the update if the delta would be negative.
This can lead to a lack of precision in the coutner values, but from my testing

Btrfs: don't force chunk allocation in find_free_extent

find_free_extent likes to allocate in contiguous clusters,
which makes writeback faster, especially on SSD storage.  As
the FS fragments, these clusters become harder to find and we have
to decide between allocating a new chunk to make more clusters
or giving up on the cluster to allocate from the free space
we have.

Right now it creates too many chunks, and you can end up with
a whole FS that is mostly empty metadata chunks.  This commit
changes the allocation code to be more strict and only
allocate new chunks when we've made good use of the chunks we

  old) all cpus are assinged node 0
  now) cpus are assigned round robin
       (the logic is implemented by numa_init_array())

  Note: The change in behavior only happens if the system doesn't
        have neither ACPI SRAT table nor AMD northbridge NUMA
information.

Round robin assignment doesn't work because init_numa_sched_groups_power()
assumes all logical cpus in the same physical cpu share the same node
(then it only accounts for group_first_cpu()), and the simple round robin
breaks the above assumption.

Thus, this patch implements a reassignment of node-ids if buggy firmware
or numa emulation makes wrong cpu node map. Tt enforce all logical cpus
in the same physical cpu share the same node.

for the dentry itself.  It's the directory locking that rename and
readdir() etc all care about.

The comment just above even says so - but then the BUG_ON() still
checked the dentry inode itself.

Very few people noticed, because this helper function really isn't used
for very much, so you had to be using ncpfs to ever hit it.

I think I should just remove the BUG_ON (the function really has just
one user), but let's run with it fixed for a while before getting rid of
it entirely.
