While testing and rearranging pquota/gquota code, I stumbled
on a xfs_shutdown() during a mount. But the mount just hung.
Debugged and found that there is a deadlock involving
It is in a code path where &log->l_cilp->xc_ctx_lock is first
acquired in read mode and some levels down the same semaphore
is being acquired in write mode causing a deadlock.
This is the stack:
xfs_log_commit_cil -> acquires &log->l_cilp->xc_ctx_lock in read mode
xlog_cil_push - tries to acquire same semaphore in write mode
This patch fixes the deadlock by changing the reason code for
xfs_force_shutdown in xlog_print_tic_res() to SHUTDOWN_LOG_IO_ERROR.
SHUTDOWN_LOG_IO_ERROR is the right reason code to be set since
we are in the log path.
Thanks to Dave for suggesting this solution.
