Add new 'cond_resched_bkl()' helper function
It acts exactly like a regular 'cond_resched()', but will not get optimized away when CONFIG_PREEMPT is set. Normal kernel code is already preemptable in the presense of CONFIG_PREEMPT, so cond_resched() is optimized away (see commit 02b67cc3ba36bdba351d6c3a00593f4ec550d9d3 "sched: do not do cond_resched() when CONFIG_PREEMPT"). But when wanting to conditionally reschedule while holding a lock, you need to use "cond_sched_lock(lock)", and the new function is the BKL equivalent of that. Also make fs/locks.c use it.
