Description pr 2021-07-26 23:03:55 UTC
This lock order reversal is shown at after unmounting a UFS fs.

I have been able to isolate two scenarios:
1) ZFS root, mount an external UFS, then unmount it
lock order reversal:
 1st 0xffffa00061bb3070 zfs (zfs, lockmgr) @ /usr/src/sys/kern/vfs_mount.c:1817
 2nd 0xffffa0201d280e70 devfs (devfs, lockmgr) @ /usr/src/sys/kern/vfs_subr.c:3251

2) UFS root (in this case the lor shows at shutdown).

All this is on a recent current:
# uname -a
FreeBSD asn 14.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 14.0-CURRENT #0 main-n248066-439097486ba0: Tue Jul 20 13:26:37 CEST 2021     root@asn:/usr/obj/usr/src/arm64.aarch64/sys/GENERIC  arm64

This is similar to bug #256868 but I reported it independently because it happens on different circumstances.

I am unable to test CURRENT on an hardware != aarch64, so I am reporting the bug for this hardware, but the lor might show up on different hardware as well.

Is this known? Shall it be reported? There is an outaded page http://sources.zabbadoz.net/freebsd/lor.html and I don't see this exact LOR there...
Comment 1 Gary Jennejohn 2021-07-27 03:20:05 UTC
I've seen this LOR on my AMD64 system at shutdown when WITNESS and INVARIANTS are enabled in the kernel configuration file.  Seems to be harmless.
Comment 2 Kirk McKusick freebsd_committer 2021-07-27 04:07:42 UTC
These are harmless but annoying. I am working on a fix to eliminate them.
