Subject[PATCH v2] notifier: Fix soft lockup for notifier_call_chain().
Date
The problem was occurs in my system that a lot of drviers register
its own handler to the notifiler call chain for netdev_chain, and
then create 4095 vlan dev for one nic, and add several ipv6 address
on each one of them, just like this:

for i in `seq 1 4095`; do ip link add link eth0 name eth0.$i type vlan id $i; done
for i in `seq 1 4095`; do ip -6 addr add 2001::$i dev eth0.$i; done
for i in `seq 1 4095`; do ip -6 addr add 2002::$i dev eth0.$i; done
for i in `seq 1 4095`; do ip -6 addr add 2003::$i dev eth0.$i; done

ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth0 down

then it will halt several seconds, and occurs softlockup:

=================================cut here========================================

It looks that the notifier_call_chain has to deal with too much handler, and will not
feed the watchdog until finish the work, and the notifier_call_chain may be called
in atomic context, so add touch_nmi_watchdog() in the loops to fix this problem,
and it will not panic again.

v2: add cond_resched() will break the atomic context, so feed the watchdog in
the loops to fix this bug.
