low probability race in zfs_get_data
error = dmu_sync(zio, lr->lr_common.lrc_txg, zfs_get_done, zgd); ASSERT(error || lr->lr_length <= zp->z_blksz);
It's possible, although extremely rare, that the
zfs_get_done() callback is executed before
In that case the znode's range lock is dropped and the znode is unreferenced.
Thus, the assertion can access some invalid or wrong data via the
size variable caches the correct value of
z_blksz and can be safely used here.
