xfs: walk all AGs if TRYLOCK passed to xfs_alloc_vextent_iterate_ags
Source kernel commit: 9eb775968b68d049fb3b00353f12cd10308527c7
Callers of xfs_alloc_vextent_iterate_ags that pass in the TRYLOCK flag
want us to perform a non-blocking scan of the AGs for free space. There
are no ordering constraints for non-blocking AGF lock acquisition, so
the scan can freely start over at AG 0 even when minimum_agno > 0.
This manifests fairly reliably on xfs/294 on 6.3-rc2 with the parent
pointer patchset applied and the realtime volume enabled. I observed
the following sequence as part of an xfs_dir_createname call:
0. Fragment the free space, then allocate nearly all the free space in
all AGs except AG 0.
1. Create a directory in AG 2 and let it grow for a while.
2. Try to allocate 2 blocks to expand the dirent part of a directory.
The space will be allocated out of AG 0, but the allocation will not
be contiguous. This (I think) activates the LOWMODE allocator.
3. The bmapi call decides to convert from extents to bmbt format and
tries to allocate 1 block. This allocation request calls
xfs_alloc_vextent_start_ag with the inode number, which starts the
scan at AG 2. We ignore AG 0 (with all its free space) and instead
scrape AG 2 and 3 for more space. We find one block, but this now
kicks t_highest_agno to 3.
4. The createname call decides it needs to split the dabtree. It tries
to allocate even more space with xfs_alloc_vextent_start_ag, but now
we're constrained to AG 3, and we don't find the space. The
createname returns ENOSPC and the filesystem shuts down.
This change fixes the problem by making the trylock scan wrap around to
AG 0 if it doesn't like the AGs that it finds. Since the current
transaction itself holds AGF 0, the trylock of AGF 0 will succeed, and
we take space from the AG that has plenty.
