Subject: KCSAN: data-race in __jbd2_journal_file_buffer / jbd2_journal_dirty_metadata


When using Healer( to fuzz
the Linux kernel, I found a data-race vulnerability in
__jbd2_journal_file_buffer / jbd2_journal_dirty_metadata.
Sorry, data-race is usually difficult to reproduce. I cannot provide
you with a reproducing program.
I hope that the call stack information in the crash log can help you
locate the problem.
Kernel config and full log can be found in the attachment.

Here is the detailed information:
