Oh well. Apparently we're not making progress on that, so I looked at
the patch again.

Can we fix it up a bit? In particular, the "bookmark_wake_function()"
thing added no value, and definitely shouldn't have been exported.
Just use NULL instead.

And the WAITQUEUE_WALK_BREAK_CNT thing should be internal to
__wake_up_common(), not in some common header file. Again, there's no
value in exporting it to anybody else.

And doing

if (curr->flags & WQ_FLAG_BOOKMARK)

looks odd, when we just did

unsigned flags = curr->flags;

one line earlier, so that can be just simplified.

So can you test that simplified version of the patch? I'm attaching my
suggested edited patch, but you may just want to do those changes
directly to your tree instead.

Hmm?
