Subject: [PATCH 1/2] epoll: use the waitqueue lock to protect ep->wq

The eoll code currently always uses the unlocked waitqueue helpers for
ep->wq, but instead of holding the lock inside the waitqueue around these
calls, as expected by the epoll code uses its own lock.  Given that the
waitqueue is not exposed to the rest of the kernel this actually works
ok at the moment, but prevents the epoll locking rules from being
enforced using lockdep.  Remove ep->lock and use the waitqueue lock
to not only reduce the size of struct eventpoll but also make sure we
can assert locking invariations in the waitqueue code.
