btrfs-progs: backref: Allow backref walk to handle direct parent ref
[BUG] Btrfs lowmem mode fails with the following ASSERT() on certain valid image. ------ backref.c:466: __add_missing_keys: Assertion `ref->root_id` failed, value 0 ------ [REASON] Lowmem mode uses btrfs_find_all_roots() when walking down fs trees. However if a tree block with only shared parent backref like below, backref code from btrfs-progs doesn't handle it correct. ------ item 72 key (604653731840 METADATA_ITEM 0) itemoff 13379 itemsize 60 refs 4 gen 7198 flags TREE_BLOCK|FULL_BACKREF tree block skinny level 0 shared block backref parent 604498477056 shared block backref parent 604498460672 shared block backref parent 604498444288 shared block backref parent 604498411520 ------ Such shared block ref is *direct* ref, which means we don't need to solve its key, nor its rootid. As the objective of backref walk is to find all direct parents until it reaches tree root. So for such direct ref, it should be pended to pref_stat->pending, other than pending it to pref_stat->pending_missing_key. [FIX] For direct ref, pending it to pref_state->pending directly to solve the problem. Reported-by: Chris Murphy <> Signed-off-by: Qu Wenruo <> Signed-off-by: David Sterba <>
