Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 061/100] sched/wait: Fix add_wait_queue() behavioral change
Date
From: Omar Sandoval <osandov@fb.com>

[ Upstream commit c6b9d9a33029014446bd9ed84c1688f6d3d4eab9 ]

The following cleanup commit:

50816c48997a ("sched/wait: Standardize internal naming of wait-queue entries")

... unintentionally changed the behavior of add_wait_queue() from
inserting the wait entry at the head of the wait queue to the tail
of the wait queue.

Beyond a negative performance impact this change in behavior
theoretically also breaks wait queues which mix exclusive and
non-exclusive waiters, as non-exclusive waiters will not be
woken up if they are queued behind enough exclusive waiters.
