Locked tasks

If two tasks have the same priority and one of them goes into a locked 
up state, such as a while loop, will the other task get scheduled again 
if the locked task does not specifically relinquish?  What I believe is 
happening is that my termios task is getting locked out at the write but 
preventing my other task of equal priority to run.

Is there a way to use timeslices so a task never gets all cpu usage?
