Subject[07/45] futex: Fix errors in nested key ref-counting
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Darren Hart <dvhart@linux.intel.com>

commit 7ada876a8703f23befbb20a7465a702ee39b1704 upstream.

futex_wait() is leaking key references due to futex_wait_setup()
acquiring an additional reference via the queue_lock() routine. The
nested key ref-counting has been masking bugs and complicating code
analysis. queue_lock() is only called with a previously ref-counted
key, so remove the additional ref-counting from the queue_(un)lock()
functions.

Also futex_wait_requeue_pi() drops one key reference too many in
unqueue_me_pi(). Remove the key reference handling from
unqueue_me_pi(). This was paired with a queue_lock() in
futex_lock_pi(), so the count remains unchanged.

Document remaining nested key ref-counting sites.
