    Subject[PATCH] Remove bogus WARN_ON in futex_wait

    futex_wait goes to an interruptible sleep, but does a WARN_ON later
    if it wakes up early. But waking up early is totally legal, since
    the sleep is interruptible and any signal can wake it up.

    Remove the WARN_ON checking for that.
