Subject: [PATCH] SUNRPC: allow svc_recv to break out of 500ms sleep when alloc_page fails

svc_recv() calls alloc_page(), and if it fails it does a 500ms
uninterruptible sleep and then reattempts. There doesn't seem to be any
real reason for this to be uninterruptible, so change it to an
interruptible sleep. Also check for kthread_stop() and signalled() after
setting the task state to avoid races that might lead to sleeping after
kthread_stop() wakes up the task.

I've done some very basic smoke testing with this, but obviously it's
hard to test the actual changes since this all depends on an
alloc_page() call failing.
