Hi Dave,

When I was running the AIM7's disk workload on a 8-socket
Westmere-EX server with 4.0 kernel, the kernel crash. A set of small
ramdisks were created (ramdisk_size=271072). Those ramdisks were
formatted with XFS filesystem before the test began. The kernel log

XFS (ram12): Mounting V4 Filesystem
XFS (ram12): Log size 1424 blocks too small, minimum size is 1596 blocks
XFS (ram12): Log size out of supported range. Continuing onwards,
but if log hangs are
experienced then please report this message in the bug report.
First thing you need to do is upgrade xfsprogs so that this message
goes away. or use "mkfs.xfs -l size=10m" so that the log is larger
than the minimum.

Why do you have a mix of signed and unsigned modules loaded?

I did the test on a RHEL 6.6 system. The 4.0 kernel is unsigned, but there are some additional RHEL modules loaded at boot up time.

The xfs_iflush_fork+0x181/0x240 (385) IP address is at:

(rearrange slightly to make more sense)

823        case XFS_DINODE_FMT_LOCAL:
824            if ((iip->ili_fields&  dataflag[whichfork])&&
    0x00000000000023c0<+336>:    movslq %ecx,%rcx

    0x00000000000023d1<+353>:    je     0x2350<xfs_iflush_fork+224>

825                (ifp->if_bytes>  0)) {
    0x00000000000023d7<+359>:    mov    (%r10),%edx

So the contents of rdx says that the inode fork size is 6 bytes in
local format. The call location also indicates that it is the
attribute fork that is in being flushed. The minimum size of the
attr fork is 3 bytes - an empty header. However, then ext valid size
has a second header that adds 4 bytes to the size, plus the bytes
inteh attr name and value.

Hence a size of 6 bytes is invalid, and probably indicates that
there is some form of memory corruption going on here.

IIRC, we haven't touched this code for a while - can you test 3.19
and see if it has the same problem? If it doesn't have the problem,
and given you can reliably reproduce the crash, can you run a
bisect to find the cause?

I have done the bisection and the following commit in 3.13 is the one that cause the problem, I think:

xfs: push down inactive transaction mgmt for truncate

I looked at the patch, and it didn't seem quite right, but I don't know much about the XFS internal to be sure. Maybe you can take a look at that.
