Subject[PATCH] [176/223] nommu: yield CPU while disposing VM
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Steven J. Magnani <steve@digidescorp.com>

commit 04c3496152394d17e3bc2316f9731ee3e8a026bc upstream.

Depending on processor speed, page size, and the amount of memory a
process is allowed to amass, cleanup of a large VM may freeze the system
for many seconds. This can result in a watchdog timeout.

Make sure other tasks receive some service when cleaning up large VMs.
