ocfs2: fix occurring deadlock by changing ocfs2_wq from global to local
This patch fixes a deadlock, as follows:
Node 1 Node 2 Node 3
1)volume a and b are only mount vol a only mount vol b
2) start to mount b start to mount a
3) check hb of Node 3 check hb of Node 2
in vol a, qs_holds++ in vol b, qs_holds++
4) -------------------- all nodes' network down --------------------
5) progress of mount b the same situation as
failed, and then call Node 2
but the process is hung,
since there is a work
in ocfs2_wq cannot beo
completed. This work is
about vol a, because
ocfs2_wq is global wq.
BTW, this work which is
scheduled in ocfs2_wq is
and the context in this work
needs to take inode lock
of orphan_dir, because
lockres owner are Node 1 and
all nodes' nework has been down
at the same time, so it can't
get the inode lock.
6) Why can't this node be fenced
when network disconnected?
Because the process of
mount is hung what caused qs_holds
is not equal 0.
Because all works in the ocfs2_wq are relative to the super block.
The solution is to change the ocfs2_wq from global to local. In other
words, move it into struct ocfs2_super.
