cfq-iosched: Reduce linked group count upon group destruction
FQ keeps track of number of groups which are linked on blkcg->blkg_list. This is useful to avoid races between queue exit and cgroup exit code paths. So if at the request queue exit time linked group count is not zero, that means there are some group out there which is yet to be deleted under rcu read period and queue exit code should wait for on rcu period. In my previous patch I forgot to decrease the number of group count. So in current form, we nr_blkcg_linked_grps is always non-zero and we will always wait one rcu period (if BLK_CGROUP=y). The side effect of this is that it can increase boot time. I am surprised, nobody complained so far. Signed-off-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
