xfs: bunmapi has unnecessary AG lock ordering issues
large directory block size operations are assert failing because xfs_bunmapi() is not completely removing fragmented directory blocks like so: XFS: Assertion failed: done, file: fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_dir2.c, line: 677 .... Call Trace: xfs_dir2_shrink_inode+0x1a8/0x210 xfs_dir2_block_to_sf+0x2ae/0x410 xfs_dir2_block_removename+0x21a/0x280 xfs_dir_removename+0x195/0x1d0 xfs_rename+0xb79/0xc50 ? avc_has_perm+0x8d/0x1a0 ? avc_has_perm_noaudit+0x9a/0x120 xfs_vn_rename+0xdb/0x150 vfs_rename+0x719/0xb50 ? __lookup_hash+0x6a/0xa0 do_renameat2+0x413/0x5e0 __x64_sys_rename+0x45/0x50 do_syscall_64+0x3a/0x70 entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe+0x44/0xae We are aborting the bunmapi() pass because of this specific chunk of code: /* * Make sure we don't touch multiple AGF headers out of order * in a single transaction, as that could cause AB-BA deadlocks. */ if (!wasdel && !isrt) { agno = XFS_FSB_TO_AGNO(mp, del.br_startblock); if (prev_agno != NULLAGNUMBER && prev_agno > agno) break; prev_agno = agno; } This is designed to prevent deadlocks in AGF locking when freeing multiple extents by ensuring that we only ever lock in increasing AG number order. Unfortunately, this also violates the "bunmapi will always succeed" semantic that some high level callers depend on, such as xfs_dir2_shrink_inode(), xfs_da_shrink_inode() and xfs_inactive_symlink_rmt(). This AG lock ordering was introduced back in 2017 to fix deadlocks triggered by generic/299 as reported here: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-xfs/800468eb-3ded-9166-20a4-047de8018582@gmail.com/ This codebase is old enough that it was before we were defering all AG based extent freeing from within xfs_bunmapi(). THat is, we never actually lock AGs in xfs_bunmapi() any more - every non-rt based extent free is added to the defer ops list, as is all BMBT block freeing. And RT extents are not RT based, so there's no lock ordering issues associated with them. Hence this AGF lock ordering code is both broken and dead. Let's just remove it so that the large directory block code works reliably again. Tested against xfs/538 and generic/299 which is the original test that exposed the deadlocks that this code fixed.
