Btrfs: fix memory leak in reading btree blocks
commit 2571e739677f1e4c0c63f5ed49adcc0857923625 upstream.
So we can read a btree block via readahead or intentional read,
and we can end up with a memory leak when something happens as
1) readahead starts to read block A but does not wait for read
2) btree_readpage_end_io_hook finds that block A is corrupted,
and it needs to clear all block A's pages' uptodate bit.
3) meanwhile an intentional read kicks in and checks block A's
pages' uptodate to decide which page needs to be read.
4) when some pages have the uptodate bit during 3)'s check so
3) doesn't count them for eb->io_pages, but they are later
cleared by 2) so we has to readpage on the page, we get
the wrong eb->io_pages which results in a memory leak of
This fixes the problem by firstly getting all pages's locking and
then checking pages' uptodate bit.
t1(readahead) t2(readahead endio) t3(the following read)
for pg in eb: for page 0,1,2 in eb:
if pg is uptodate: btree_readpage_end_io_hook(pg)
num_reads++ if uptodate:
eb->io_pages = num_reads SetPageUptodate(pg) _______________
for pg in eb: for page 3 in eb: read_extent_buffer_pages
if pg is NOT uptodate: btree_readpage_end_io_hook(pg) for pg in eb:
__extent_read_full_page(pg) sanity check reports something wrong if pg is uptodate:
for pg in eb: eb->io_pages = num_reads
for pg in eb:
if pg is NOT uptodate:
So t3's eb->io_pages is not consistent with the number of pages it's reading,
and during endio(), atomic_dec_and_test(&eb->io_pages) will get a negative
number so that we're not able to free the eb.
