[PATCH] ia64: eliminate softlockup warning

From: <hawkes_at_sgi.com>
Date: 2005-12-15 10:23:36
Fix an unnecessary softlockup watchdog warning in the ia64
uncached_build_memmap() that occurs occasionally at 256p and always at
512p.  The problem occurs at boot time.

It would be good if we had a cleaner mechanism to temporarily silence
the watchdog thread, e.g.,
    http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=111552476401175&w=2
but until that patch gets merged, this fix will have to suffice.
