Subject[PATCH 4.18 085/171] memory_hotplug: cond_resched in __remove_pages
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

commit dd33ad7b251f900481701b2a82d25de583867708 upstream.

We have received a bug report that unbinding a large pmem (>1TB) can
result in a soft lockup:

NMI watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#9 stuck for 23s! [ndctl:4365]

It has been reported on an older (4.12) kernel but the current upstream
code doesn't cond_resched in the hot remove code at all and the given
range to remove might be really large. Fix the issue by calling
cond_resched once per memory section.
