Patch

===============

commit bedc1969150d480c462cdac320fa944b694a7162 upstream.

Carrying out the following steps results in a softlockup in the
RCU callback-offload (rcuo) kthreads:

1. Connect to ixgbevf, and set the speed to 10Gb/s.
2. Use ifconfig to bring the nic up and down repeatedly.

It turns out that the rcuos callback-offload kthread is busy processing
a very large quantity of RCU callbacks, and it is not reliquishing the
CPU while doing so.  This commit therefore adds an cond_resched_rcu_qs()
within the loop to allow other tasks to run.

[js] use onlu cond_resched() in 3.12
