Already fixed, thanks. folio_copy() had a cond_resched() in it,
even if it was only copying a single page. Now it only calls
cond_resched() if it's copying more than one page.

We discussed this in the folio call on Friday, because we're leaving a
bit of a landmine here for whoever tries to make multi-page folios work
with buffer_heads. There's not much we can do about it for now; it'll
just be one of the many problems to be dealt with. Hopefully filesystems
will convert to iomap instead of trying to make buffer_heads support
multiple pages.
