audit: wait_for_auditd() should use TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE
audit_log_start() does wait_for_auditd() in a loop until audit_backlog_wait_time passes or audit_skb_queue has a room. If signal_pending() is true this becomes a busy-wait loop, schedule() in TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE won't block. Thanks to Guy for fully investigating and explaining the problem. (akpm: that'll cause the system to lock up on a non-preemptible uniprocessor kernel) (Guy: "Our customer was in fact running a uniprocessor machine, and they reported a system hang.")
