Subject[PATCH 5.8 117/118] mm: memcg: fix memcg reclaim soft lockup
Date
From: Xunlei Pang <xlpang@linux.alibaba.com>

commit e3336cab2579012b1e72b5265adf98e2d6e244ad upstream.

We've met softlockup with "CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE=y", when the target memcg
doesn't have any reclaimable memory.

It can be easily reproduced as below:

watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 111s![memcg_test:2204]
CPU: 0 PID: 2204 Comm: memcg_test Not tainted 5.9.0-rc2+ #12
Call Trace:

__do_fault+0x4d/0xf9
handle_mm_fault+0x1080/0x1790

It only happens on our 1-vcpu instances, because there's no chance for
oom reaper to run to reclaim the to-be-killed process.

Add a cond_resched() at the upper shrink_node_memcgs() to solve this
issue, this will mean that we will get a scheduling point for each memcg
in the reclaimed hierarchy without any dependency on the reclaimable
memory in that memcg thus making it more predictable.
