Btrfs: fix ->iterate_shared() by upgrading i_rwsem for delayed nodes
Commit fe742fd4f90f ("Revert "btrfs: switch to ->iterate_shared()"") backed out the conversion to ->iterate_shared() for Btrfs because the delayed inode handling in btrfs_real_readdir() is racy. However, we can still do readdir in parallel if there are no delayed nodes. This is a temporary fix which upgrades the shared inode lock to an exclusive lock only when we have delayed items until we come up with a more complete solution. While we're here, rename the btrfs_{get,put}_delayed_items functions to make it very clear that they're just for readdir. Tested with xfstests and by doing a parallel kernel build: while make tinyconfig && make -j4 && git clean dqfx; do : done along with a bunch of parallel finds in another shell: while true; do for ((i=0; i<4; i++)); do find . >/dev/null & done wait done Signed-off-by: Omar Sandoval <> Signed-off-by: David Sterba <> Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <>
