futex: Fix handling of bad requeue syscall pairing
Darren Hart [Fri, 7 Aug 2009 22:20:48 +0000 (15:20 -0700)]
If futex_requeue(requeue_pi=1) finds a futex_q that was created by a call
other the futex_wait_requeue_pi(), the q.rt_waiter may be null.  If so,
this will result in an oops from the following call graph:

futex_requeue()
  rt_mutex_start_proxy_lock()
    task_blocks_on_rt_mutex()
      waiter->task dereference
        OOPS

We currently WARN_ON() if this is detected, clearly this is inadequate.
If we detect a mispairing in futex_requeue(), bail out, seding -EINVAL to
user-space.

V2: Fix parenthesis warnings.
