Subject[PATCH 2/2] pipe: Fix missing mask update after pipe_wait()
Fix pipe_write() to regenerate the ring index mask and update max_usage
after calling pipe_wait().

This is necessary as the latter function drops the pipe lock, thereby
allowing F_SETPIPE_SZ change it. Without this, pipe_write() may
subsequently miscalculate the array indices and pipe fullness, leading to
an oops like the following:
