Subject[PATCH 4.14 264/267] ext4: fix a bug in ext4_wait_for_tail_page_commit
Date
From: yangerkun <yangerkun@huawei.com>

commit 565333a1554d704789e74205989305c811fd9c7a upstream.

No need to wait for any commit once the page is fully truncated.
Besides, it may confuse e.g. concurrent ext4_writepage() with the page
still be dirty (will be cleared by truncate_pagecache() in
ext4_setattr()) but buffers has been freed; and then trigger a bug
show as below:

Run the procedure (generate by syzkaller) parallel with ext3.

void main()
{
int fd, fd1, ret;
void *addr;
size_t length = 4096;
int flags;
off_t offset = 0;
char *str = "12345";

fd = open("a", O_RDWR | O_CREAT);
assert(fd >= 0);

/* Truncate to 4k */
ret = ftruncate(fd, length);
assert(ret == 0);

/* Journal data mode */
flags = 0xc00f;
ret = ioctl(fd, _IOW('f', 2, long), &flags);
assert(ret == 0);

/* Truncate to 0 */
fd1 = open("a", O_TRUNC | O_NOATIME);
assert(fd1 >= 0);

addr = mmap(NULL, length, PROT_WRITE | PROT_READ,
MAP_SHARED, fd, offset);
assert(addr != (void *)-1);

memcpy(addr, str, 5);
mbind(addr, length, 0, 0, 0, MPOL_MF_MOVE);
}

And the bug will be triggered once we seen the below order.

reproduce1 reproduce2

... | ...
truncate to 4k |
change to journal data mode |
| memcpy(set page dirty)
truncate to 0: |
ext4_setattr: |
... |
ext4_wait_for_tail_page_commit |
| mbind(trigger bug)
truncate_pagecache(clean dirty)| ...
... |

mbind will call ext4_writepage() since the page still be dirty, and then
report the bug since the buffers has been free. Fix it by return
directly once offset equals to 0 which means the page has been fully
truncated.
