Subject[PATCH v2] usercopy: Avoid soft lockups in test_check_nonzero_user()
Date
On a machine with a 64K PAGE_SIZE, the nested for loops in
test_check_nonzero_user() can lead to soft lockups, eg:

watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#4 stuck for 22s! [modprobe:611]
Modules linked in: test_user_copy(+) vmx_crypto gf128mul crc32c_vpmsum virtio_balloon ip_tables x_tables autofs4

Even with a 4K PAGE_SIZE the test takes multiple seconds. Instead
tweak it to only scan a 1024 byte region, but make it cross the
page boundary.

v2: Rework calculation to just use PAGE_SIZE directly.
Rebase onto Christian's tree.
