Subject[PATCH v4 5/6] powerpc: Chunk calls to flush_dcache_range in arch_*_memory
Date
From: Alastair D'Silva <alastair@d-silva.org>

When presented with large amounts of memory being hotplugged
(in my test case, ~890GB), the call to flush_dcache_range takes
a while (~50 seconds), triggering RCU stalls.

This patch breaks up the call into 1GB chunks, calling
cond_resched() inbetween to allow the scheduler to run.
