Hi Peter,

I did this way following a similar pattern in affine_move_task(). However, I
think you are right. Unlike in the case affine_move_task(), we have
schedule() to do the right thing for us in case of any races with wakeup. So
the TASK_WAKING test is indeed not needed and we can drop tha test. Apologies
for adding the extra test out of paranoia.

thanks,

- Joel
