- Change holdcnt use around vnode recycling. We now always keep a holdcnt
ref while we're calling vgone(). This prevents transient refs from
re-adding us to the free list. Previously, a vfree() triggered via
vinvalbuf() getting rid of all of a vnode's pages could place a partially
destructed vnode on the free list where vtryrecycle() could find it. The
first call to vtryrecycle would hang up on the vnode lock, but when it
failed it would place a now dead vnode onto the free list, and another
call to vtryrecycle() would free an already free vnode. There were many
complications of having a zero ref count while freeing which can now go
- Change vdropl() to release the interlock before returning. All callers
now respect this, so vdropl() directly frees VI_DOOMED vnodes once the
last ref is dropped. This means that we'll never have VI_DOOMED vnodes
on the free list.
- Seperate v_incr_usecount() into v_incr_usecount(), v_decr_usecount() and
v_decr_useonly(). The incr/decr split is so that incr usecount can
return with the interlock still held while decr drops the interlock so
it can call vdropl() which will potentially free the vnode. The calling
function can't drop the lock of an already free'd node. v_decr_useonly()
drops a usecount without droping the hold count. This is done so the
usecount reaches zero in vput() before we recycle, however the holdcount
is still 1 which prevents any new references from placing the vnode
back on the free list.
- Fix vnlrureclaim() to vhold the vnode since it doesn't do a vget(). We
wouldn't want vnlrureclaim() to bump the usecount since this has
different semantics. Also change vnlrureclaim() to do a NOWAIT on the
vn_lock. When this function runs we're usually in a desperate situation
and we wouldn't want to wait for any specific vnode to be released.
- Fix a bunch of misc comments to reflect the new behavior.
- Add vhold() and vdrop() to vflush() for the same reasons that we do in
vlrureclaim(). Previously we held no reference and a vnode could have
been freed while we were waiting on the lock.
- Get rid of vlruvp() and vfreehead(). Neither are used. vlruvp() should
really be rethought before it's reintroduced.
- vgonel() always returns with the vnode locked now and never puts the
vnode back on a free list. The vnode will be freed as soon as the last
reference is released.
