Subject[PATCH 5.9 70/74] mm: mark async iocb read as NOWAIT once some data has been copied
Date
From: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>

commit 13bd691421bc191a402d2e0d3da5f248d170a632 upstream.

Once we've copied some data for an iocb that is marked with IOCB_WAITQ,
we should no longer attempt to async lock a new page. Instead make sure
we return the copied amount, and let the caller retry, instead of
returning -EIOCBQUEUED for a new page.

This should only be possible with read-ahead disabled on the below
device, and multiple threads racing on the same file. Haven't been able
to reproduce on anything else.

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # v5.9
Fixes: 1a0a7853b901 ("mm: support async buffered reads in generic_file_buffered_read()")
