So... something else sets ret to -EAGAIN which should be returned to
userspace, rather than used to retry.

Cramming this entire function into futex_wait_requeue_pi() doesn't
appear relevant to the problem. Please don't make
futex_wait_requeue_pi() any longer than it already is. My fault that,
but let's not make it worse!

The above is the core of the change yes?

I did a little digging trying to see what else might be returning EAGAIN
after the handle_early..() call. I only see fixup_pi_state_owner() and
rt_mutex_finish_proxy_lock(). Neither of those has an obvious return of
EAGAIN. I'll keep looking.

If this turns out to be the proper fix, please reduce it down to simply
check for EAGAIN after handle_early..() and return from there, with a
comment, and avoid moving the logic into this overly large function.

Thanks,
