Subject[PATCH] fscache: fix a kernel BUG at fs/fscache/operation.c:69!
Date
From: Lei Xue <carmark.dlut@gmail.com>

There is a potential race in fscache operation enqueuing for reading and
copying multiple pages from cachefiles to netfs.
Under some heavy load system, it will happen very often.

If this race occurs, an oops similar to the following is seen:
