So I share Davidlohrs concern if we should not simply revert that
change; but given we've now gone over it detail I suppose we should just
keep the optimized version.

I did add a comment to your patch; and queued the below for
sched/urgent.

Subject: sched/completion: completion_done() should serialize with complete()

Commit de30ec47302c "Remove unnecessary ->wait.lock serialization when
reading completion state" was not correct, without lock/unlock the code
like stop_machine_from_inactive_cpu()

while (!completion_done())
cpu_relax();

can return before complete() finishes its spin_unlock() which writes to
this memory. And spin_unlock_wait().

While at it, change try_wait_for_completion() to use READ_ONCE().
