It seems that test_and_set_bit_lock() is the preferred way to handle
flags when memory ordering is important, and I can't see how to use that
well with an "I'm done" flag. I can make it look OK with a "I'm
detaching" flag. Maybe this is better.

Subject: [PATCH] locks: restore locks_delete_lock optimization

A recent patch (see Fixes: below) removed an optimization which is
important as it avoids taking a lock in a common case.

The comment justifying the optimisation was correct as far as it went,
in that if the tests succeeded, then the values would remain stable and
the test result will remain valid even without a lock.

However after the test succeeds the lock can be freed while some other
thread might have only just set ->blocker to NULL (thus allowing the
test to succeed) but has not yet called wake_up() on the wq in the lock.
If the wake_up happens after the lock is freed, a use-after-free error occurs.

This patch restores the optimization and adds a flag to ensure this
use-after-free is avoid. The use happens only when the flag is set, and
the free doesn't happen until the flag has been cleared, or we have
taken blocked_lock_lock.

Fixes: 6d390e4b5d48 ("locks: fix a potential use-after-free problem when wakeup a waiter")
