futex: Update woken requeued futex_q lock_ptr

futex_requeue() can acquire the lock on behalf of a waiter
during the requeue loop in the event of a lock steal or owner
died. futex_wait_requeue_pi() cleans up the pi_state owner,
using the lock_ptr to protect against concurrent access to the
pi_state. The pi_state is found on the requeue target futex
hash bucket so the lock_ptr needs to be updated accordingly.

The problem manifested by triggering the WARN_ON in
lookup_pi_state() about the pid != pi_state->owner pid.

The astute reviewer will note that still exists a race between
the time futex_requeue() releases hb2->lock() and the time when
futex_wait_requeue_pi() acquires it. During this time the
pi_state and the futex uaddr are not in sync with the rt_mutex
ownership. This patch closes the window to the point where my
tests now pass, but we still need to address it.
