Subject: [PATCH 4.20 38/88] locking/rwsem: Fix (possible) missed wakeup

4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit e158488be27b157802753a59b336142dc0eb0380 ]

Because wake_q_add() can imply an immediate wakeup (cmpxchg failure
case), we must not rely on the wakeup being delayed. However, commit:

  e38513905eea ("locking/rwsem: Rework zeroing reader waiter->task")

relies on exactly that behaviour in that the wakeup must not happen
until after we clear waiter->task.

[ peterz: Added changelog. ]
