No, it does not. It fixes only one and this one was introduced while I
rebased RT ontop of the futex work - the patch "futex: Fix bug on when a
requeued RT task times out" to be exact.
If you look at the code in the v4.9 or v4.11 RT then you see that there
is just rt_mutex_start_proxy_lock()() and this function acquires and
releases ->wait_lock lock. After the futex rework the locking changed
and I missed to adapt the RT-only patch I mentioned.
Again: without the patch, the ->wait_lock is dropped twice in the error
case here: once here and the second time by the caller and this has only
been like this since the futex-rework. So this does not apply to v4.1-RT
for instance because the futex rework got into v4.9.18-rt14 and I don't
recall that you backported it.
