Subject[PATCH 4.17 208/220] slub: fix failure when we delete and create a slab cache
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com>

commit d50d82faa0c964e31f7a946ba8aba7c715ca7ab0 upstream.

In kernel 4.17 I removed some code from dm-bufio that did slab cache
merging (commit 21bb13276768: "dm bufio: remove code that merges slab
caches") - both slab and slub support merging caches with identical
attributes, so dm-bufio now just calls kmem_cache_create and relies on
implicit merging.

This uncovered a bug in the slub subsystem - if we delete a cache and
immediatelly create another cache with the same attributes, it fails
because of duplicate filename in /sys/kernel/slab/. The slub subsystem
offloads freeing the cache to a workqueue - and if we create the new
cache before the workqueue runs, it complains because of duplicate
filename in sysfs.

This patch fixes the bug by moving the call of kobject_del from
sysfs_slab_remove_workfn to shutdown_cache. kobject_del must be called
while we hold slab_mutex - so that the sysfs entry is deleted before a
cache with the same attributes could be created.

Running device-mapper-test-suite with:

dmtest run --suite thin-provisioning -n /commit_failure_causes_fallback/

triggered:
