fs/proc: fix softlockup in __read_vmcore

While taking a kernel core dump with makedumpfile on a larger system,
softlockup messages often appear.

While softlockup warnings can be harmless, they can also interfere with
things like RCU freeing memory, which can be problematic when the kdump
kexec image is configured with as little memory as possible.

Avoid the softlockup, and give things like work items and RCU a chance to
do their thing during __read_vmcore by adding a cond_resched.
