`fs/ext4/inode.c`:

```
  static int ext4_set_page_dirty(struct page *page)
  {
    WARN_ON_ONCE(!PageLocked(page) && !PageDirty(page)); // this is line 3925
    WARN_ON_ONCE(!page_has_buffers(page));
    return __set_page_dirty_buffers(page);
  }
```

I'm using ext4 only on zram, like (/etc/fstab):
/dev/zram1                   /tmp        ext4    defaults,auto,rw,exec,nosuid,strictatime,nodev,discard,delalloc,block_validity,user_xattr,nojournal_checksum,barrier 0 0
/dev/zram2               /var/tmp        ext4    defaults,auto,rw,exec,nosuid,strictatime,nodev,discard,delalloc,block_validity,user_xattr,nojournal_checksum,barrier 0 0

```
$ mount|grep ext4
/dev/zram1 on /tmp type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,discard)
/dev/zram2 on /var/tmp type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,discard)
```

my root filesystem is btrfs/zstd:5

Thanks for report! We know about this problem but the solution is a work in progress and probably will take quite a while to sort that out properly.

Comment 4 GYt2bW 2019-08-14 00:13:59 UTC
The commit that attempts to fix this(and thus links to this issue) is causing a system freeze (where sysctl+s,u,b still works though) when attempting to cause a memory pressure via script `memfreeze`(ran as variant 1) which I used in order to test [le9g.patch](https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/phoronix/general-discussion/1118164-yes-linux-does-bad-in-low-ram-memory-pressure-situations-on-the-desktop?p=1119440#post1119440) that prevents disk thrashing, but this system freeze happens without that patch also.

commit aa56a292ce623734ddd30f52d73f527d1f3529b5
    drm/i915/userptr: Acquire the page lock around set_page_dirty()
```

The freeze seems to be happening right before OOM-killer is about to kill something, apparently.

I double checked that v5.3-rc4 with this commit reverted does indeed get rid of the system freeze.

`memfreeze` script is this:

```

#!/bin/bash

#run this multiple times consecutively, but not at once.

#this should freeze i87k for about 1-2 seconds(actually 5 seconds - try running top of watch -n1 -d cat /proc/meminfo) while running out of memory temporarily just before OOM triggers and kills one of the threads:
#^ old comments

#Ensure watchers are running:
ensure_this_runs_already() {
  local cmdtorun="$*"
  if ! pgrep --full "^${cmdtorun}$" >/dev/null; then
    #shellcheck disable=SC2086
    xfce4-terminal -x $cmdtorun  #XXX: unquoted! else it will fail to launch!
  fi
}
ensure_this_runs_already "watch -n.1 -d cat /proc/meminfo"
#ensure_this_runs_already watch -n.1 -d cat /proc/meminfo #yes this works too! I even tested it.
ensure_this_runs_already "top -d 0.5"
ensure_this_runs_already "sudo iotop -d 5 -o -b"
#exit 1


#XXX tested on i87k host
systemctl --user stop psd #otherwise have to manually rename 2+1 profile dirs from *-backup to * after the system crashes(and it does with 5.3.0-rc4-gd45331b00ddb kernel, not with 5.2.0 (git) though, or 5.2.4 (stable) )
if test "${0##*/}" == "memfreeze2"; then
  variant=2
elif test "${0##*/}" == "memfreeze3"; then
  variant=3
else
  variant=1
fi
echo "!! Using memfreeze variant '$variant'"

if test "$1" != "keepswap"; then
  echo "! swapoff first"
  sudo swapoff -a
  threads=2
  timeout=10s
else
  threads=6
  timeout=30s
fi
sync #because possibly crash! in fact guaranteed crash in 5.3.0-rc4-gd45331b00ddb even without any le*.patch-es

if test "$variant" == "1"; then
  #this is a remnant from when I've tested this on QubesOS
  alloc="$(awk '/MemAvailable/{printf "%d\n", $2 + 4000;}' < /proc/meminfo)"
  echo "Will alloc: $alloc kB for each of the $threads concurrent threads."
  echo "MemTotal before: $(awk '/MemTotal/{printf "%d kB\n", $2;}' < /proc/meminfo)"
  time stress --vm-bytes "${alloc}k" --vm-keep -m $threads --timeout $timeout
  echo "exit code: $?"
  awk '/MemTotal/{printf "MemTotal afterwards: %d kB\n", $2;}' < /proc/meminfo

  time stress -m 3000 --vm-bytes 10M --timeout 50
else
  echo "!! memfreeze variant not implemented"
fi

Comment 5 GYt2bW 2019-08-14 16:36:28 UTC
Just to be clear, this is a regression that commit aa56a292ce623734ddd30f52d73f527d1f3529b5 introduces, which is manifested by a deadlock-like system freeze which is different than the one that le9g.patch is addressing. (all of this is mentioned in prev. comment)

I don't know what the fix is, but temporarily reverting that commit gets rid of the regression.

Please let me know whether I should stick around if you want me to test any new patch about this or not. (because otherwise I won't even check my email/notifications for this account, anymore)

Cheers.
Comment 6 GYt2bW 2019-09-09 00:01:42 UTC
Freeze still present on 5.3.0-rc8 kernel, but only on Intel/i915, not on AMD/Radeon.

I've gotten this freeze during compilation(s).

I've attempted to get a kdump by triggering the freeze via `memfreeze`(script) then sysrq+c to crash kernel, however, I'm unable to (for some reason) read the kdump, but here's what it says anyway: https://gist.github.com/howaboutsynergy/d9818dcf462c071251a236787d8fbea6#file-gistfile1-txt-L1
Comment 7 Theodore Tso 2019-09-09 08:09:05 UTC
Note that you filed this bug against the ext4 file system (because of the ext4 warning).   As a result, regressions about the i915 driver are not going to be seen by the i915 driver developers (and ext4 developers will generally ignroe them).

It looks like you are trying to stress test Linux kernels under very high memory pressure, and this is no doubt going to cause multiple issues to pop out.   Please don't conflate them into a single bug, and please note that not all kernel subsystems (not even a majority) prefer to use bugzilla for people to report bugs. 

If you can't find a component in the bugzilla (and perhaps even if you can), you are better off sending a note to the mailing list entry (L:) in the MAINTAINERS file.
Comment 8 GYt2bW 2019-09-09 08:19:54 UTC
But, I 've already tested that reverting that commit gets rid of the freeze. Even if the cause is somewhere else, it appears that the regression is introduced by the very commit I mentioned: aa56a292ce623734ddd30f52d73f527d1f3529b5 (and that commit mentions this issue - which is why I'm posting here)

I mean, the only thing I could try to do is to somehow find a way to get a stacktrace while the system is frozen, but for some reason even manually causing kernel to crash(sysrq+c) fails to allow me to read the dump via 'crash' afterwards ...

Also, I've encountered the freeze during chromium compilation (possibly because it uses at least 15+GiB of 32G of RAM due to jumbo). Even though it's easier for me to trigger the freeze via the 'memfreeze' script. So I expect users will hit this soon. (assuming they use some kind of ext4, I use it on the /tmp and /var/tmp zram)

Not sure how else to say it. I used bisect to find the commit(a while ago), tested with and without it. 

Ahh forgot to mention that what I said in Comment 6 (that freeze/race) happens when the commit is NOT reverted.

But this isn't the same freeze that happens during the memory pressure which simply does a ton of disk reading. I know because I'm already patching against it by keeping Active(file) above 300MiB. (see Comment 4)

I'm happy to try other things to help with this. Please let me know what I could do.

ok I did that, thanks! :)

Where?

If you think this is about i915, and want i915 developers to look, please file bugs at [1], or send email to intel-gfx@lists.freedesktop.org where the likely first response is to ask you to file bugs at [1].

Generally the only action the i915 developers do at bugzilla.kernel.org is to close, and ask bugs to be filed at [1]. You get the picture. ;)

The only reason I think it's about i915 is because of:
1. "i915" in the stacktrace in Comment 1
2. it only happens on my Intel(i915) computer, not on Amd/Radeon laptop(I simply cannot reproduce the freeze on the AMD one)

Good info, thanks! I'll file a bug there then. Sorry for the noise.
