Jeff Layton - Sept. 21, 2009, 10:47 a.m.
This is the fourth respin of the patch to convert oplock breaks to
use the slow_work facility.

A customer of ours was testing a backport of one of the earlier
patchsets, and hit a "Busy inodes after umount..." problem. An oplock
break job had raced with a umount, and the superblock got torn down and
its memory reused. When the oplock break job tried to dereference the
inode->i_sb, the kernel oopsed.

This patchset has the oplock break job hold an inode and vfsmount
reference until the oplock break completes.  With this, there should be
no need to take a tcon reference (the vfsmount implicitly holds one
already).

Currently, when an oplock break comes in there's a chance that the
oplock break job won't occur if the allocation of the oplock_q_entry
fails. There are also some rather nasty races in the allocation and
handling these structs.

Rather than allocating oplock queue entries when an oplock break comes
in, add a few extra fields to the cifsFileInfo struct. Get rid of the
dedicated cifs_oplock_thread as well and queue the oplock break job to
the slow_work thread pool.

This approach also has the advantage that the oplock break jobs can
potentially run in parallel rather than be serialized like they are
today.
