Subjecttarget/iscsi: dangling reference preventing tpg_np completion
Date
Hello,

This is my first post to LKML. I'm not subscribed to the mailing list, so please CC me on any responses. I posted an earlier version of this bug report to the target-devel mailing list, but have not gotten any responses there (https://www.spinics.net/lists/target-devel/msg17905.html).

We're migrating from ietd to LIO & targetcli and have experienced targetcli processes stacking up in uninterruptible sleep. Here are some details about the platform:
- Ubuntu 16.04
- kernel 4.15.0-64-generic (package linux-image-4.15.0-64-generic version 4.15.0-64.73~16.04.1)
- targetcli-fb 2.1.fb43
- python3-rtslib-fb 2.1.fb57

It does not appear to be tied to specific hardware; I've witnessed it occurring on several different Intel CPU families (Celeron, Core i3, and several generations of Xeon [E5620 - E5 2650 v4]) on motherboards from ASRock, ASRockRack, Dell, Gigabyte, and SuperMicro with at least 8GB and up to 256GB of RAM.

I haven't found a way to force the issue to happen. The systems I've observed it on all create short-lived iSCSI targets with backstores that are all loop devices backed by files on ZFS. Each target has a single initiator connect to it, and each initiator only connects to a single target. Some of the systems are creating/removing targets several dozen times per hour, and less active systems are creating/removing one or two targets per day.

When the issue occurs, targetcli/LIO interactions completely lock up: if more targetcli commands are executed, the system will eventually have 251 instances of targetcli stuck in the 'D' state, at which point DBUS refuses additional connections:

All other targetcli PIDs' stacks are exactly the same as PID 25858's.

iscsi_np's stack suggests that it's just waiting for connections...
[<0>] inet_csk_accept+0x281/0x330
[<0>] inet_accept+0x45/0x180
[<0>] kernel_accept+0x59/0xb0
[<0>] iscsit_accept_np+0x43/0x230 [iscsi_target_mod]
[<0>] iscsi_target_login_thread+0x366/0x1060 [iscsi_target_mod]
[<0>] kthread+0x105/0x140
[<0>] ret_from_fork+0x35/0x40
[<0>] 0xffffffffffffffff

Using bpftrace, I determined that the reset command is hanging on this code in iscsit_reset_np_thread():

if (tpg_np && shutdown) {
kref_put(&tpg_np->tpg_np_kref, iscsit_login_kref_put);

wait_for_completion(&tpg_np->tpg_np_comp);
}

This bit of code is a bit hard for me to debug. The code here drops its long-held reference to the tgp_np and waits for all other outstanding references to be dropped. However, something has not let go of its reference and so the thread is currently stuck. Since I cannot find any other threads stuck in an “iscsi*” function, I assume that some code path forgot to call kref_put() on its own, causing the struct to end up with a permanent leftover reference.

I'm posting to the mailing list because I've been unable to find the missing call and am hoping that this bug report will be helpful to someone familiar with the life cycle of this structure.

Thank you,
Matt
