Subject: [PATCH] mm: drop mmap_sem before calling balance_dirty_pages() in
write fault
commit 89b15332af7c0312a41e50846819ca6613b58b4c upstream.
One of our services is observing hanging ps/top/etc under heavy write
IO, and the task states show this is an mmap_sem priority inversion:
A write fault is holding the mmap_sem in read-mode and waiting for
(heavily cgroup-limited) IO in balance_dirty_pages():
balance_dirty_pages+0x724/0x905
balance_dirty_pages_ratelimited+0x254/0x390
fault_dirty_shared_page.isra.96+0x4a/0x90
do_wp_page+0x33e/0x400
__handle_mm_fault+0x6f0/0xfa0
handle_mm_fault+0xe4/0x200
__do_page_fault+0x22b/0x4a0
page_fault+0x45/0x50
Somebody tries to change the address space, contending for the mmap_sem in
write-mode:
call_rwsem_down_write_failed_killable+0x13/0x20
do_mprotect_pkey+0xa8/0x330
SyS_mprotect+0xf/0x20
do_syscall_64+0x5b/0x100
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x3d/0xa2
The waiting writer locks out all subsequent readers to avoid lock
starvation, and several threads can be seen hanging like this:
call_rwsem_down_read_failed+0x14/0x30
proc_pid_cmdline_read+0xa0/0x480
__vfs_read+0x23/0x140
vfs_read+0x87/0x130
SyS_read+0x42/0x90
do_syscall_64+0x5b/0x100
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x3d/0xa2
To fix this, do what we do for cache read faults already: drop the
mmap_sem before calling into anything IO bound, in this case the
balance_dirty_pages() function, and return VM_FAULT_RETRY.
