Theodore Ts'o - March 25, 2013, 12:06 a.m.
Move common code in ext4_ind_punch_hole() and ext4_ext_punch_hole()
into ext4_punch_hole().  This saves over 150 lines of code.

This also fixes a potential bug when the punch_hole() code is racing
against indirect-to-extents or extents-to-indirect migation.  We are
currently using i_mutex to protect against changes to the inode flag;
specifically, the append-only, immutable, and extents inode flags.  So
we need to take i_mutex before deciding whether to use the
extents-specific or indirect-specific punch_hole code.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it was a bug.  The
ext4_inode_block_unlocked_dio() call was added in the extents code
path by commit 02d262dffcf4c.  The problem is that i_mutex will not
block DIO readers in dioread_nolock mode.  One of the problems with
not having done the code refactorization earlier was that a bug fixed
in one code path doesn't necessarily get fixed in another.

I'll add a comment to this effect in the commit description.

Yes, good catch!

Thanks,

Great, thanks.

I am not sure why I do not see my mail on the ext4 list.. But
anyway, you've missed my last comment bellow this one.
