futex: Fix locking imbalance
Thomas Gleixner [Sun, 4 Oct 2009 07:34:17 +0000 (09:34 +0200)]
Rich reported a lock imbalance in the futex code:

   http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14288

It's caused by the displacement of the retry_private label in
futex_wake_op(). The code unlocks the hash bucket locks in the
error handling path and retries without locking them again which
makes the next unlock fail.

Move retry_private so we lock the hash bucket locks when we retry.
