Subject[34-longterm 093/209] nommu: yield CPU while disposing VM
Date
From: Steven J. Magnani <steve@digidescorp.com>

=====================================================================
| This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release. |
| If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.|
=====================================================================
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.
