performance/read-ahead: don't set ra_file in fd->ctx unless all memebers of ra_file is initialized
- If ptr to ra_file is set in fd->ctx even before initializing all its members, A race condition may occur b/w a thread executing ra_fstat, ra_readv etc (where all files open on the same inode are flushed) and the thread doing initialization of ra_file (in ra_open_cbk or ra_create_cbk). Because of this race-condition, flush_region might be called on an uninitialized ra_file, thereby causing crash. Signed-off-by: Raghavendra G <> Signed-off-by: Anand V. Avati <> BUG: 868 (crash in ra_fstat) URL:
