xfs: fix shutdown hang on invalid inode during create
When the new inode verify in xfs_iread() fails, the create transaction is aborted and a shutdown occurs. The subsequent unmount then hangs in xfs_wait_buftarg() on a buffer that has an elevated hold count. Debug showed that it was an AGI buffer getting stuck: [ 22.576147] XFS (vdb): buffer 0x2/0x1, hold 0x2 stuck [ 22.976213] XFS (vdb): buffer 0x2/0x1, hold 0x2 stuck [ 23.376206] XFS (vdb): buffer 0x2/0x1, hold 0x2 stuck [ 23.776325] XFS (vdb): buffer 0x2/0x1, hold 0x2 stuck The trace of this buffer leading up to the shutdown (trimmed for brevity) looks like: xfs_buf_init: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller xfs_buf_get_map xfs_buf_get: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 1 caller xfs_buf_read_map xfs_buf_read: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 1 caller xfs_trans_read_buf_map xfs_buf_iorequest: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller _xfs_buf_read xfs_buf_hold: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller xfs_buf_iorequest xfs_buf_rele: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 2 caller xfs_buf_iorequest xfs_buf_iowait: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller _xfs_buf_read xfs_buf_ioerror: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 1 caller xfs_buf_bio_end_io xfs_buf_iodone: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller _xfs_buf_ioend xfs_buf_iowait_done: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller _xfs_buf_read xfs_buf_hold: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller xfs_buf_item_init xfs_trans_read_buf: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 2 recur 0 refcount 1 xfs_trans_brelse: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 2 recur 0 refcount 1 xfs_buf_item_relse: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 2 caller xfs_trans_brelse xfs_buf_rele: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 2 caller xfs_buf_item_relse xfs_buf_unlock: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller xfs_trans_brelse xfs_buf_rele: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 1 caller xfs_trans_brelse xfs_buf_trylock: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 2 caller _xfs_buf_find xfs_buf_find: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 2 caller xfs_buf_get_map xfs_buf_get: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 2 caller xfs_buf_read_map xfs_buf_read: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 2 caller xfs_trans_read_buf_map xfs_buf_hold: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 2 caller xfs_buf_item_init xfs_trans_read_buf: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 3 recur 0 refcount 1 xfs_trans_log_buf: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 3 recur 0 refcount 1 xfs_buf_item_unlock: bno 0x2 len 0x200 hold 3 flags DIRTY liflags ABORTED xfs_buf_unlock: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 3 caller xfs_buf_item_unlock xfs_buf_rele: bno 0x2 nblks 0x1 hold 3 caller xfs_buf_item_unlock And that is the AGI buffer from cold cache read into memory to transaction abort. You can see at transaction abort the bli is dirty and only has a single reference. The item is not pinned, and it's not in the AIL. Hence the only reference to it is this transaction. The problem is that the xfs_buf_item_unlock() call is dropping the last reference to the xfs_buf_log_item attached to the buffer (which holds a reference to the buffer), but it is not freeing the xfs_buf_log_item. Hence nothing will ever release the buffer, and the unmount hangs waiting for this reference to go away. The fix is simple - xfs_buf_item_unlock needs to detect the last reference going away in this case and free the xfs_buf_log_item to release the reference it holds on the buffer.
