Subject[PATCH 3.2 18/87] futex: Drop refcount if requeue_pi() acquired the rtmutex
3.2.77-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit fb75a4282d0d9a3c7c44d940582c2d226cf3acfb upstream.

If the proxy lock in the requeue loop acquires the rtmutex for a
waiter then it acquired also refcount on the pi_state related to the
futex, but the waiter side does not drop the reference count.

Add the missing free_pi_state() call.
