vmstats: add cond_resched() to refresh_cpu_vm_stats()
Dimitri Sivanich [Mon, 28 Apr 2008 09:13:37 +0000 (02:13 -0700)]
We've found that it can take quite a bit of time (100's of usec) to get
through the zone loop in refresh_cpu_vm_stats().

Adding a cond_resched() to allow other threads to run in the non-preemptive
case.
