ARM: cacheflush: split user cache-flushing into interruptible chunks



Flushing a large, non-faulting VMA from userspace can potentially result
in a long time spent flushing the cache line-by-line without preemption
occurring (in the case of CONFIG_PREEMPT=n).

Whilst this doesn't affect the stability of the system, it can certainly
affect the responsiveness and CPU availability for other tasks.

This patch splits up the user cacheflush code so that it flushes in
chunks of a page. After each chunk has been flushed, we may reschedule
if appropriate and, before processing the next chunk, we allow any
pending signals to be handled before resuming from where we left off.
