Simon Horman - May 1, 2013, 8:57 a.m.
This avoids the situation where a dump of a large number of connections
may prevent scheduling for a long time while also avoiding excessive
calls to rcu_read_unlock() and rcu_read_lock().

Note that in the case of !CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU this will
add a call to cond_resched().

Compile tested only.
