do_wait-wakeup-optimization: fix child_wait_callback()->eligible_child() usage
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 23 Sep 2009 22:56:48 +0000 (15:56 -0700)]
child_wait_callback()->eligible_child() is not right, we can miss the
wakeup if the task was detached before __wake_up_parent() and the caller
of do_wait() didn't use __WALL.

Move ->wo_pid checks from eligible_child() to the new helper,
eligible_pid(), and change child_wait_callback() to use it instead of
eligible_child().

Note: actually I think it would be better to fix the __WCLONE check in
eligible_child(), it doesn't look exactly right.  But it is not clear what
is the supposed behaviour, and any change is user-visible.
