Subject[PATCH 4.9 55/78] btrfs: Dont remove block group that still has pinned down bytes
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Qu Wenruo <>

[ Upstream commit 43794446548730ac8461be30bbe47d5d027d1d16 ]

Under certain KVM load and LTP tests, it is possible to hit the
following calltrace if quota is enabled:

It's caused by race with block group auto removal:

- There is a meta block group X, which has only one tree block
The tree block belongs to fs tree 257.
- In current transaction, some operation modified fs tree 257
The tree block gets COWed, so the block group X is empty, and marked
as unused, queued to be deleted.
- Some workload (like fsync) wakes up cleaner_kthread()
Which will call btrfs_delete_unused_bgs() to remove unused block
So block group X along its chunk map get removed.
- Some delalloc work finished for fs tree 257
Quota needs to get the original reference of the extent, which will
read tree blocks of commit root of 257.
Then since the chunk map gets removed, the above warning gets

Just let btrfs_delete_unused_bgs() skip block group which still has
pinned bytes.

However there is a minor side effect: currently we only queue empty
blocks at update_block_group(), and such empty block group with pinned
bytes won't go through update_block_group() again, such block group
won't be removed, until it gets new extent allocated and removed.
