mod_delayed_work() deletes the pending timer but does not wait for already
invoked timer handler to complete because it is using del_timer() rather than
del_timer_sync(). Then, what happens if __queue_work() is almost concurrently
executed from two CPUs, one from mod_delayed_work(bdi_wq, &wb->dwork, 0) from
wb_shutdown() path (which is called without spin_lock_bh(&wb->work_lock)) and
the other from delayed_work_timer_fn() path (which is called without checking
WB_registered bit under spin_lock_bh(&wb->work_lock)) ?

wb_wakeup_delayed() {
spin_lock_bh(&wb->work_lock);
if (test_bit(WB_registered, &wb->state)) // succeeds
queue_delayed_work(bdi_wq, &wb->d_work, timeout) {
queue_delayed_work_on(WORK_CPU_UNBOUND, bdi_wq, &wb->d_work, timeout) {
if (!test_and_set_bit(WORK_STRUCT_PENDING_BIT, work_data_bits(&wb->d_work.work))) { // succeeds
__queue_delayed_work(WORK_CPU_UNBOUND, bdi_wq, &wb->d_work, timeout) {
add_timer(timer); // schedules for delayed_work_timer_fn()
}
}
}
}
spin_unlock_bh(&wb->work_lock);
}

delayed_work_timer_fn() {
// del_timer() already returns false at this point because this timer
// is already inside handler. But something took long here enough to
// wait for __queue_work() from wb_shutdown() path to finish?
__queue_work(WORK_CPU_UNBOUND, bdi_wq, &wb->d_work.work) {
insert_work(pwq, work, worklist, work_flags);
}
}

wb_shutdown() {
mod_delayed_work(bdi_wq, &wb->dwork, 0) {
mod_delayed_work_on(WORK_CPU_UNBOUND, bdi_wq, &wb->dwork, 0) {
ret = try_to_grab_pending(&wb->dwork.work, true, &flags) {
if (likely(del_timer(&wb->dwork.timer))) // fails because already in delayed_work_timer_fn()
return 1;
if (!test_and_set_bit(WORK_STRUCT_PENDING_BIT, work_data_bits(&wb->dwork.work))) // fails because already set by queue_delayed_work()
return 0;
// Returns 1 or -ENOENT after doing something?
}
if (ret >= 0)
__queue_delayed_work(WORK_CPU_UNBOUND, bdi_wq, &wb->dwork, 0) {
__queue_work(WORK_CPU_UNBOUND, bdi_wq, &wb->dwork.work) {
insert_work(pwq, work, worklist, work_flags);
}
}
}
}
}
