    Subject[086/127] nommu: yield CPU while disposing VM
    2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us 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.
