We tested a soft lockup problem in linux 4.19 which could also
be found in linux 5.x.

When dir inode takes up a large number of blocks, and if the
directory is growing when we are searching, it's possible the
restart branch could be called many times, and the do while loop
could hold cpu a long time.

Here is the call trace in linux 4.19.

Add cond_resched() to avoid soft lockup and to provide a better
system responding.

Thanks for the patch! It looks good. You can add:

I was just wondering how come we didn't hit other scheduling points (e.g.
when reading directory blocks from the disk) but likely the directory
including new blocks was staying in cache...
