Subject[ 029/184] kernel/resource.c: fix stack overflow in
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
__reserve_region_with_split()

From: T Makphaibulchoke <tmac@hp.com>

commit 4965f5667f36a95b41cda6638875bc992bd7d18b upstream.

Using a recursive call add a non-conflicting region in
__reserve_region_with_split() could result in a stack overflow in the case
that the recursive calls are too deep. Convert the recursive calls to an
iterative loop to avoid the problem.

Tested on a machine containing 135 regions. The kernel no longer panicked
with stack overflow.

Also tested with code arbitrarily adding regions with no conflict,
embedding two consecutive conflicts and embedding two non-consecutive
conflicts.
