Subject[PATCH 4.14 121/159] md: always set THREAD_WAKEUP and wake up wqueue if thread existed
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Guoqing Jiang <>

[ Upstream commit d1d90147c9680aaec4a5757932c2103c42c9c23b ]

Since commit 4ad23a976413 ("MD: use per-cpu counter for writes_pending"),
the wait_queue is only got invoked if THREAD_WAKEUP is not set previously.

With above change, I can see process_metadata_update could always hang on
the wait queue, because mddev->thread could stay on 'D' status and the
THREAD_WAKEUP flag is not cleared since there are lots of place to wake up
mddev->thread. Then deadlock happened as follows:

linux175:~ # ps aux|grep md|grep D
root 20117 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? D 03:45 0:00 [md0_raid1]
root 20125 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? D 03:45 0:00 [md0_cluster_rec]
linux175:~ # cat /proc/20117/stack
[<ffffffffa0635604>] dlm_lock_sync+0x94/0xd0 [md_cluster]
[<ffffffffa0635674>] lock_token+0x34/0xd0 [md_cluster]

[<ffffffffa06450e2>] raid1d+0x42/0x810 [raid1]
[<ffffffffa04d2252>] md_thread+0x122/0x150 [md_mod]
[<ffffffff81091741>] kthread+0x101/0x140
linux175:~ # cat /proc/20125/stack
[<ffffffffa0636679>] recv_daemon+0x3f9/0x5c0 [md_cluster]
[<ffffffffa04d2252>] md_thread+0x122/0x150 [md_mod]
[<ffffffff81091741>] kthread+0x101/0x140

So let's revert the part of code in the commit to resovle the problem since
we can't get lots of benefits of previous change.
