    ocfs2: Fix deadlock on umount · f7b1aa69
    Jan Kara authored
    In commit ea455f8a, we moved the dentry lock
    put process into ocfs2_wq. This causes problems during umount because ocfs2_wq
    can drop references to inodes while they are being invalidated by
    invalidate_inodes() causing all sorts of nasty things (invalidate_inodes()
    ending in an infinite loop, "Busy inodes after umount" messages etc.).
    We fix the problem by stopping ocfs2_wq from doing any further releasing of
    inode references on the superblock being unmounted, wait until it finishes
    the current round of releasing and finally cleaning up all the references in
    dentry_lock_list from ocfs2_put_super().
    The issue was tracked down by Tao Ma <tao.ma@oracle.com>.
