Ugh. I was going to say "but that doesn't even use select_collect()",
but yeah, detach_and_collect() calls it.

It would be easy enough to just change the

                if (!list_empty(&data.select.dispose))

there to

                if (!list_empty(&data.select.found))

too.

In fact, it probably *should* do that, exactly to get the whole
"cond_resched()" call in that whole call chain too. Because as-is, it
looks like it has the same issue as shrink_dcache_parent() does..

But yeah, the fact that I didn't notice that makes me a bit nervous.
But now I triple-checked, there are no other indirect callers.
