Subject[2.6.22.2 review 42/84] futex: pass nr_wake2 to futex_wake_op

From: Andreas Schwab <schwab@suse.de>

The fourth argument of sys_futex is ignored when op == FUTEX_WAKE_OP,
but futex_wake_op expects it as its nr_wake2 parameter.

The only user of this operation in glibc is always passing 1, so this
bug had no consequences so far.
