Subject[PATCH 5.4 176/191] xfs: periodically yield scrub threads to the scheduler
Date
From: Darrick J. Wong <darrick.wong@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit 5d1116d4c6af3e580f1ed0382ca5a94bd65a34cf ]

Christoph Hellwig complained about the following soft lockup warning
when running scrub after generic/175 when preemption is disabled and
slub debugging is enabled:

watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#3 stuck for 22s! [xfs_scrub:161]

If preemption is disabled, all metadata buffers needed to perform the
scrub are already in memory, and there are a lot of records to check,
it's possible that the scrub thread will run for an extended period of
time without sleeping for IO or any other reason. Then the watchdog
timer or the RCU stall timeout can trigger, producing the backtrace
above.

To fix this problem, call cond_resched() from the scrub thread so that
we back out to the scheduler whenever necessary.
