Subject[PATCH] 2.5.46: epoll ep_insert doesn't wake waiters if events exist

The logic in fs/eventpoll.c:ep_insert() checks to see if events are
already present when processing an EP_CTL_ADD operation, and, if any are,
adds them to the list. It does not wake up any waiters, so, e.g., another
thread waiting in epoll_wait() will not be awakened for these events. The
fix is to have ep_insert() do wakeups, just as ep_poll_callback() does when
it adds events.
