Subject[PATCH 5.2 058/137] powerpc/pseries/mobility: use cond_resched when updating device tree
Date
From: Nathan Lynch <nathanl@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit ccfb5bd71d3d1228090a8633800ae7cdf42a94ac ]

After a partition migration, pseries_devicetree_update() processes
changes to the device tree communicated from the platform to
Linux. This is a relatively heavyweight operation, with multiple
device tree searches, memory allocations, and conversations with
partition firmware.

There's a few levels of nested loops which are bounded only by
decisions made by the platform, outside of Linux's control, and indeed
we have seen RCU stalls on large systems while executing this call
graph. Use cond_resched() in these loops so that the cpu is yielded
when needed.
