Subject[PATCH][V2] nommu: yield CPU while disposing VM
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.
