Subject: [PATCH] dma-debug: fix soft lockup when a lot of debug are enabled
Date: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 11:36:16 +0100
Message-ID: <20181211103616.22137-1-anders.roxell@linaro.org> (raw)

When running a kernel in qemu with enough debugging options (slub-debug,
ftrace, kcov, kasan, ubsan, ...) enabled together, that results in a
slow initcall. So a 'watchdog: BUG: soft lockup' happens:

[   44.105619] Call trace:

[   44.115570]  kernel_init+0x24/0x18c
[   44.116498]  ret_from_fork+0x10/0x18

Rework to call cond_resched(), in the function prealloc_memory()'s
for-loop.
