Subject[PATCH] block: fix a crash in do_task_dead()
The commit 0619317ff8ba ("block: add polled wakeup task helper")
replaced wake_up_process() with blk_wake_io_task() in
end_swap_bio_read() which triggers a crash when running heavy swapping

[T114538] kernel BUG at kernel/sched/core.c:3462!
[T114538] Process oom01 (pid: 114538, stack limit = 0x000000004f40e0c1)
[T114538] Call trace:

This is because shortly after set_special_state(TASK_DEAD),
end_swap_bio_read() is called from an interrupt handler that revive the
task state to TASK_RUNNING causes __schedule() to return and trip the
BUG() later.

Before the offensive commit, wake_up_process() will prevent this from
happening by taking the pi_lock and bail out immediately if TASK_DEAD is

if (!(p->state & TASK_NORMAL))
goto out;

Fix it by calling wake_up_process() if it is in a non-task context.
