So you just use cand_owner (the name sucks) to flag that the waiter
has been woken up either by the boost code or by an unlock. The waiter
clears that flag with waiter->lock->wait_lock held before calling
schedule().

Though I think we do need it at all. wakeup of an already running task
is almost a nop, so having one less state to worry about is good.

Thanks,
