From: Niu Yawei <>

To avoid scanning the replay open list every time in the
ptlrpc_free_committed(), the fix of LU-2613 (4322e0f9) changed
the ptlrpc_free_committed() to skip the open list unless the
import generation is changed. That introduced a race which could
make a closed open being replayed:

1. Application calls ll_close_inode_openhandle()-> mdc_close(),
   to close file, rq_replay is cleared, but the open request is
   still on the imp_committed_list;

2. Before the md_clear_open_replay_data() is called for close,
   client start replay, and that closed open will be replayed

3. Open replay interpret callback (mdc_replay_open) could race
   with the mdc_clear_open_replay_data() at the end;

This patch fix the ptlrpc_free_committed() to make sure the
open list is scanned on recovery to prevent the closed open request
from being replayed.
