sched/wake_q: Add branch prediction hint to wake_q_add() cmpxchg

The cmpxchg() will fail when the task is already in the process
of waking up, and as such is an extremely rare occurrence.
Micro-optimize the call and put an unlikely() around it.

To no surprise, when using CONFIG_PROFILE_ANNOTATED_BRANCHES
under a number of workloads the incorrect rate was a mere 1-2%.
