Hi, 

When running specjbb on a power7 numa box, I am seeing java threads
getting stuck in futex

# ps -Ao pid,tt,user,fname,tmout,f,wchan | grep futex
14808 pts/0 root java - 0 futex_wait_queue_me
14925 pts/0 root java - 0 futex_wait_queue_me
#

There are 332 tasks all stuck in futex_wait_queue_me().
I am able to reproduce this consistently.

Infact I can reproduce this if the java_constraint is either node, socket, system.
However I am not able to reproduce if java_constraint is set to core.

I ran git bisect between v3.12 and v3.14-rc6 and found that

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=b0c29f79ecea0b6fbcefc999e70f2843ae8306db

commit b0c29f79ecea0b6fbcefc999e70f2843ae8306db
Author: Davidlohr Bueso <davidlohr@hp.com>
Date: Sun Jan 12 15:31:25 2014 -0800

futexes: Avoid taking the hb->lock if there's nothing to wake up

was the commit thats causing the threads to be stuck in futex.

I reverted b0c29f79ecea0b6fbcefc999e70f2843ae8306db on top of v3.14-rc6 and confirmed that
reverting the commit solved the problem.
