This could be llist_empty() first to do a quick
cheap check. And then __llist_del_all() here because
it appears nothing else than gp kthread can touch sr.wait.

Two times head intended here? There should be some
temporary storage in the middle.

So you can have:

* Queue to sr.curr is atomic fully ordered
* Check and move from sr.curr to sr.wait is atomic fully ordered
* Check from sr.wait can have a quick unatomic unordered
  llist_empty() check. Then extract unatomic unordered as well.
* If too many, move atomic/ordered to sr.done.

Am I missing something?
