Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] ext4: fix reserved space counter leakage

* Jeffle Xu <jefflexu@...ux.alibaba.com>:
> When ext4_insert_delayed block receives and recovers from an error from
> ext4_es_insert_delayed_block(), e.g., ENOMEM, it does not release the
> space it has reserved for that block insertion as it should. One effect
> of this bug is that s_dirtyclusters_counter is not decremented and
> remains incorrectly elevated until the file system has been unmounted.
> This can result in premature ENOSPC returns and apparent loss of free
> space.
> 
> Another effect of this bug is that
> /sys/fs/ext4/<dev>/delayed_allocation_blocks can remain non-zero even
> after syncfs has been executed on the filesystem.
> 
> Besides, add check for s_dirtyclusters_counter when inode is going to be
> evicted and freed. s_dirtyclusters_counter can still keep non-zero until
> inode is written back in .evict_inode(), and thus the check is delayed
> to .destroy_inode().
