Subject[PATCH 3.2 086/106] swap: cond_resched in swap_cgroup_prepare()
3.2.93-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Yu Zhao <yuzhao@google.com>

commit ef70762948dde012146926720b70e79736336764 upstream.

I saw need_resched() warnings when swapping on large swapfile (TBs)
because continuously allocating many pages in swap_cgroup_prepare() took
too long.

We already cond_resched when freeing page in swap_cgroup_swapoff(). Do
the same for the page allocation.
