invalidate_mapping_pages(): add cond_resched
invalidate_mapping_pages() can sometimes take a long time (millions of pages to free). Long enough for the softlockup detector to trigger. We used to have a cond_resched() in there but I took it out because the drop_caches code calls invalidate_mapping_pages() under inode_lock. The patch adds a nasty flag and puts the cond_resched() back. Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
