sysfs: fix race condition around sd->s_dentry, take#2
Allowing attribute and symlink dentries to be reclaimed means sd->s_dentry can change dynamically. However, updates to the field are unsynchronized leading to race conditions. This patch adds sysfs_lock and use it to synchronize updates to sd->s_dentry. Due to the locking around ->d_iput, the check in sysfs_drop_dentry() is complex. sysfs_lock only protect sd->s_dentry pointer itself. The validity of the dentry is protected by dcache_lock, so whether dentry is alive or not can only be tested while holding both locks. This is minimal backport of sysfs_drop_dentry() rewrite in devel branch. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <htejun@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
