Subject[64/93] dst: call cond_resched() in dst_gc_task()
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

commit 2fc1b5dd99f66d93ffc23fd8df82d384c1a354c8 upstream.

Kernel bugzilla #15239

On some workloads, it is quite possible to get a huge dst list to
process in dst_gc_task(), and trigger soft lockup detection.

Fix is to call cond_resched(), as we run in process context.
