Commit Message

Ritesh Harjani May 20, 2020, 6:40 a.m. UTC
ext4_mb_good_group() definition was changed some time back
and now it even initializes the buddy cache (via ext4_mb_init_group()),
if in case the EXT4_MB_GRP_NEED_INIT() is true for a group.
Note that ext4_mb_init_group() could sleep and so should not be called
under a spinlock held.
This is fine as of now because ext4_mb_good_group() is called before
loading the buddy bitmap without ext4_lock_group() held
and again called after loading the bitmap, only this time with
ext4_lock_group() held.
But still this whole thing is confusing.

So this patch refactors out ext4_mb_good_group_nolock() which should be
called when without holding ext4_lock_group().
Also in further patches we hold the spinlock (ext4_lock_group()) while
doing any calculations which involves grp->bb_free or grp->bb_fragments.
