Revert "semaphore: fix"
This reverts commit bf726eab3711cf192405d21688a4b21e07b6188a, as it has been reported to cause a regression with processes stuck in __down(), apparently because some missing wakeup. Quoth Sven Wegener: "I'm currently investigating a regression that has showed up with my last git pull yesterday. Bisecting the commits showed bf726e "semaphore: fix" to be the culprit, reverting it fixed the issue. Symptoms: During heavy filesystem usage (e.g. a kernel compile) I get several compiler processes in uninterruptible sleep, blocking all i/o on the filesystem. System is an Intel Core 2 Quad running a 64bit kernel and userspace. Filesystem is xfs on top of lvm. See below for the output of sysrq-w." See http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/5/10/45 for full report. In the meantime, we can just fix the BKL performance regression by reverting back to the good old BKL spinlock implementation instead, since any sleeping lock will generally perform badly, especially if it tries to be fair.
