Yeah, you don't know for a fact that the wbt wait queue is the only
guy waking us up. Any sleep like this needs a loop. It was quite
easy to reproduce for me, and as expected, you'll get list corruption
on the wait queue since we leave it on the list and the stack goes
away.

I think the other variant is cleaner and easier to read. This is just
a natural loop, I don't think we need to use goto's here.

FWIW, I split it into two patches, current version is here:
