Subject[PATCH] kmemcheck: add scheduling point to kmemleak_scan
Date
kmemleak_scan will scan struct page for each node and it can be really
large and resulting in a soft lockup. We have seen a soft lockup when do
scan while compile kernel:

[ 220.561051] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#53 stuck for 22s! [bash:10287]

Fix this by adding cond_resched every 1024 pages.
