commit 9c29c31830a4eca724e137a9339137204bbb31be upstream.

If a spinner is present, there is a chance that the load of
rwsem_has_spinner() in rwsem_wake() can be reordered with
respect to decrement of rwsem count in __up_write() leading
to wakeup being missed:

 spinning writer                  up_write caller
 ---------------                  -----------------------
 [S] osq_unlock()                 [L] osq
  spin_lock(wait_lock)
  sem->count=0xFFFFFFFF00000001
            +0xFFFFFFFF00000000
  count=sem->count
  MB
                                   sem->count=0xFFFFFFFE00000001
                                             -0xFFFFFFFF00000001
                                   spin_trylock(wait_lock)
                                   return
 rwsem_try_write_lock(count)
 spin_unlock(wait_lock)
 schedule()

Reordering of atomic_long_sub_return_release() in __up_write()
and rwsem_has_spinner() in rwsem_wake() can cause missing of
wakeup in up_write() context. In spinning writer, sem->count
and local variable count is 0XFFFFFFFE00000001. It would result
in rwsem_try_write_lock() failing to acquire rwsem and spinning
writer going to sleep in rwsem_down_write_failed().

The smp_rmb() will make sure that the spinner state is
consulted after sem->count is updated in up_write context.
