Subject[PATCH RT 06/31] rtmutex: Clarify the boost/deboost part
3.10.70-rt75-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

upstream commit: a57594a13a446d1a6ab1dcd48339f799ce586843

Add a separate local variable for the boost/deboost logic to make the
code more readable. Add comments where appropriate.
