Subject: [PATCH] btrfs: fix missing file extent item for hole after ranged
commit 95418ed1d10774cd9a49af6f39e216c1256f1eeb upstream.
When doing a fast fsync for a range that starts at an offset greater than
zero, we can end up with a log that when replayed causes the respective
inode miss a file extent item representing a hole if we are not using the
NO_HOLES feature. This is because for fast fsyncs we don't log any extents
that cover a range different from the one requested in the fsync.
Example scenario to trigger it:
$ mkfs.btrfs -O ^no-holes -f /dev/sdd
$ mount /dev/sdd /mnt
# Create a file with a single 256K and fsync it to clear to full sync
# bit in the inode - we want the msync below to trigger a fast fsync.
$ xfs_io -f -c "pwrite -S 0xab 0 256K" -c "fsync" /mnt/foo
# Force a transaction commit and wipe out the log tree.
$ sync
# Dirty 768K of data, increasing the file size to 1Mb, and flush only
# the range from 256K to 512K without updating the log tree
# (sync_file_range() does not trigger fsync, it only starts writeback
# and waits for it to finish).
$ xfs_io -c "pwrite -S 0xcd 256K 768K" /mnt/foo
$ xfs_io -c "sync_range -abw 256K 256K" /mnt/foo
# Now dirty the range from 768K to 1M again and sync that range.
$ xfs_io -c "mmap -w 768K 256K" \
-c "mwrite -S 0xef 768K 256K" \
-c "msync -s 768K 256K" \
-c "munmap" \
<power fail>
# Mount to replay the log.
$ mount /dev/sdd /mnt
$ umount /mnt
$ btrfs check /dev/sdd

Fix this issue by setting the range to full (0 to LLONG_MAX) when the
NO_HOLES feature is not enabled. This results in extra work being done
but it gives the guarantee we don't end up with missing holes after
replaying the log.
