      fs: fix data races on inode->i_flctx · 128a3785
      Dmitry Vyukov authored
      locks_get_lock_context() uses cmpxchg() to install i_flctx.
      cmpxchg() is a release operation which is correct. But it uses
      a plain load to load i_flctx. This is incorrect. Subsequent loads
      from i_flctx can hoist above the load of i_flctx pointer itself
      and observe uninitialized garbage there. This in turn can lead
      to corruption of ctx->flc_lock and other members.
      
      Documentation/memory-barriers.txt explicitly requires to use
      a barrier in such context:
      "A load-load control dependency requires a full read memory barrier".
      
      Use smp_load_acquire() in locks_get_lock_context() and in bunch
      of other functions that can proceed concurrently with
      locks_get_lock_context().
      
      The data race was found with KernelThreadSanitizer (KTSAN).

      fs-writeback: unplug before cond_resched in writeback_sb_inodes · 590dca3a
      Chris Mason authored
      Commit 505a666e ("writeback: plug writeback in wb_writeback() and
      writeback_inodes_wb()") has us holding a plug during writeback_sb_inodes,
      which increases the merge rate when relatively contiguous small files
      are written by the filesystem.  It helps both on flash and spindles.
      
      For an fs_mark workload creating 4K files in parallel across 8 drives,
      this commit improves performance ~9% more by unplugging before calling
      cond_resched().  cond_resched() doesn't trigger an implicit unplug, so
      explicitly getting the IO down to the device before scheduling reduces
      latencies for anyone waiting on clean pages.
      
      It also cuts down on how often we use kblockd to unplug, which means
      less work bouncing from one workqueue to another.
      
      Many more details about how we got here:
