Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.20 39/77] futex: Fix (possible) missed wakeup
Date
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

[ Upstream commit b061c38bef43406df8e73c5be06cbfacad5ee6ad ]

We must not rely on wake_q_add() to delay the wakeup; in particular
commit:

1d0dcb3ad9d3 ("futex: Implement lockless wakeups")

moved wake_q_add() before smp_store_release(&q->lock_ptr, NULL), which
could result in futex_wait() waking before observing ->lock_ptr ==
NULL and going back to sleep again.
