cifs: when CONFIG_HIGHMEM is set, serialize the read/write kmaps
commit 3cf003c08be785af4bee9ac05891a15bcbff856a upstream. [The async read code was broadened to include uncached reads in 3.5, so the mainline patch did not apply directly. This patch is just a backport to account for that change.] Jian found that when he ran fsx on a 32 bit arch with a large wsize the process and one of the bdi writeback kthreads would sometimes deadlock with a stack trace like this: crash> bt PID: 2789 TASK: f02edaa0 CPU: 3 COMMAND: "fsx" #0 [eed63cbc] schedule at c083c5b3 #1 [eed63d80] kmap_high at c0500ec8 #2 [eed63db0] cifs_async_writev at f7fabcd7 [cifs] #3 [eed63df0] cifs_writepages at f7fb7f5c [cifs] #4 [eed63e50] do_writepages at c04f3e32 #5 [eed63e54] __filemap_fdatawrite_range at c04e152a #6 [eed63ea4] filemap_fdatawrite at c04e1b3e #7 [eed63eb4] cifs_file_aio_write at f7fa111a [cifs] #8 [eed63ecc] do_sync_write at c052d202 #9 [eed63f74] vfs_write at c052d4ee #10 [eed63f94] sys_write at c052df4c #11 [eed63fb0] ia32_sysenter_target at c0409a98 EAX: 00000004 EBX: 00000003 ECX: abd73b73 EDX: 012a65c6 DS: 007b ESI: 012a65c6 ES: 007b EDI: 00000000 SS: 007b ESP: bf8db178 EBP: bf8db1f8 GS: 0033 CS: 0073 EIP: 40000424 ERR: 00000004 EFLAGS: 00000246 Each task would kmap part of its address array before getting stuck, but not enough to actually issue the write. This patch fixes this by serializing the marshal_iov operations for async reads and writes. The idea here is to ensure that cifs aggressively tries to populate a request before attempting to fulfill another one. As soon as all of the pages are kmapped for a request, then we can unlock and allow another one to proceed. There's no need to do this serialization on non-CONFIG_HIGHMEM arches however, so optimize all of this out when CONFIG_HIGHMEM isn't set.
