pid_ns: Sleep in TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE in zap_pid_ns_processes
The code can potentially sleep for an indefinite amount of time in zap_pid_ns_processes triggering the hung task timeout, and increasing the system average. This is undesirable. Sleep with a task state of TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE instead of TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE to remove these undesirable side effects. Apparently under heavy load this has been allowing Chrome to trigger the hung time task timeout error and cause ChromeOS to reboot.
