jffs2: avoid soft-lockup in jffs2_reserve_space_gc()
Li Zefan [Wed, 12 Feb 2014 20:44:56 +0000 (12:44 -0800)]
commit 13b546d96207c131eeae15dc7b26c6e7d0f1cad7 upstream.

We triggered soft-lockup under stress test on 2.6.34 kernel.

BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 60009ms! [lockf2.test:14488]

Fix this by adding a cond_resched() in the while loop.
