The problem is that you can not find a proper value of the threshold
time, when f2fs_gc select the GCed data page of the atomic file (which
has atomic started but not atomic committed yet), then f2fs_gc will
run into loop, and all the f2fs ops will be blocked in f2fs_balane_fs.
If the threshold time is set larger (e.g. 5s? Then all the f2fs ops will
block 5s, which will cause unexpected bad result of user experience).
And if the threshold time is set smaller (e.g. 500ms? Then the atomic
ops will probably fail frequently). BTW, some more patches are needed
to notify the atomic ops itself that it has run time out, and should
handle the inmem pages....

Back to these two patches, why not use them to separate inmem pages
and GCed data pages in such a simple way.

Back to the problem, if we skip out, then the f2fs_gc will go
into dead loop if the apps only atomic start but never atomic

That's another issue, which I have suggest to set a threshold time
to release atomic/volatile pages by balance_fs_bg.

Thanks,

commit. The main aim of my two patches is to remove the skip
action to avoid the dead loop.

As what I point in last mail, if the atomic file is not committed
yet, gc_data_segment will register_inmem_page the GCed data pages.

We will skip GCing that page as below check:

- move_data_{page,block}
   - f2fs_is_atomic_file()
     skip out;

No?

Thanks,

This will cause these data pages written twice, the first write
happens in move_data_page->do_write_data_page, and the second
write happens in later __commit_inmem_pages->do_write_data_page.

Then the GCed data pages are totally mixed with the inmem atomic pages,

If we add dio_rwsem, GC flow is exclude with atomic write flow. There
will be not race case to mix GCed page into atomic pages.

Or you mean:

                      - gc_data_segment
                       - move_data_page
                        - f2fs_is_atomic_file
- f2fs_ioc_start_atomic_write
    - set_inode_flag(inode, FI_ATOMIC_FILE);
                        - f2fs_set_data_page_dirty
                         - register_inmem_page

In this case, GCed page can be mixed into database transaction, but could
it cause any problem except break rule of isolation for transaction.

this will cause the atomic commit ops write the GCed data pages twice
(the first write happens in GC).

How about using the early two patches to separate the inmem data pages
and GCed data pages, and use dio_rwsem instead of this patch to fix the
dnode page problem (dnode page commited but data page are not committed
for the GCed page)?

Could we fix the race case first, based on that fixing, and then find the
place that we can improve?

This patch adds fi->commit_lock to avoid the case that GCed node pages

db file run into inconsistent state when sudden-power-off happens if
data pages of atomic file is allowed to be GCed before.

do_fsync:                GC:
- mutex_lock(&fi->commit_lock);
                       - lock_page()
                        - mutex_lock(&fi->commit_lock);

Well, please consider lock dependency & code complexity, IMO, reuse
fi->dio_rwsem[WRITE] will be enough as below:
