      Tested (reproduced) on 2.5 , 2.7, 2.8 and 2.9

      MPI job on 300 nodes: 2/3 open and 1/3 stat on same file => hang (The MDS server threads are idle and the load is close to 0, threads are waiting for a lock but no threads have an active lock. After a long time, 15/30mn, threads become responsive again and resume operations normally).
      Same job with only stat => no problem
      Same job with only open => no problem

      Some of the logs were similar to LU-5497 and LU-4579 but patches did not fix the issue.
      If all job's clients are evicted manually then lustre recover and resume to a normal state.
      Lustre 2.7.2 with patch of LU-5781 (Solve a race for LRU lock cancel) was tested too.

      So far what prevents the issue is to disable SELINUX:

      Tested disabling statahead. No impact.

      Traces of stuck processes on the MDS look all the same (could be related to DDN-366):

      I do not have (yet) the clients traces but last call on clients is mdc_enqueue.

      Crash dump analysis started (in progress). So far nothing obvious about SELinux, first analysis lead to ldlm_handle_enqueue0() and ldlm_lock_enqueue(). We see some processes idle for 280s, it's not entirely stuck but very very slow (we had to crash the VM to get proper dump because it was very hard to use crash as the threads are not 100% stuck).
