Subject[PATCH 4/7] kvm,x86: Fix apf_task_wake_one() wq serialization
Date
During code inspection, the following potential race was seen:

CPU0 CPU1
kvm_async_pf_task_wait apf_task_wake_one
[L] swait_active(&n->wq)
[S] prepare_to_swait(&n.wq)
[L] if (!hlist_unhahed(&n.link))
schedule() [S] hlist_del_init(&n->link);

Properly serialize swait_active() checks such that a wakeup is
not missed.
