commit 50972fe78f24f1cd0b9d7bbf1f87d2be9e4f412e upstream.

Fix ordering of link creation between node->prev and prev->next in
osq_lock(). A case in which the status of optimistic spin queue is
CPU6->CPU2 in which CPU6 has acquired the lock.

        tail
          v
  ,-. <- ,-.
  |6|    |2|
  `-' -> `-'

At this point if CPU0 comes in to acquire osq_lock, it will update the
tail count.

  CPU2			CPU0
  ----------------------------------

				       tail
				         v
			  ,-. <- ,-.    ,-.
			  |6|    |2|    |0|
			  `-' -> `-'    `-'

After tail count update if CPU2 starts to unqueue itself from
optimistic spin queue, it will find an updated tail count with CPU0 and
update CPU2 node->next to NULL in osq_wait_next().

  unqueue-A

	       tail
	         v
  ,-. <- ,-.    ,-.
  |6|    |2|    |0|
  `-'    `-'    `-'

  unqueue-B

  ->tail != curr && !node->next

If reordering of following stores happen then prev->next where prev
being CPU2 would be updated to point to CPU0 node:

				       tail
				         v
			  ,-. <- ,-.    ,-.
			  |6|    |2|    |0|
			  `-'    `-' -> `-'

  osq_wait_next()
    node->next <- 0
    xchg(node->next, NULL)

	       tail
	         v
  ,-. <- ,-.    ,-.
  |6|    |2|    |0|
  `-'    `-'    `-'

  unqueue-C

At this point if next instruction
	WRITE_ONCE(next->prev, prev);
in CPU2 path is committed before the update of CPU0 node->prev = prev then
CPU0 node->prev will point to CPU6 node.

	       tail
    v----------. v
  ,-. <- ,-.    ,-.
  |6|    |2|    |0|
  `-'    `-'    `-'
     `----------^

At this point if CPU0 path's node->prev = prev is committed resulting
in change of CPU0 prev back to CPU2 node. CPU2 node->next is NULL
currently,

				       tail
			                 v
			  ,-. <- ,-. <- ,-.
			  |6|    |2|    |0|
			  `-'    `-'    `-'
			     `----------^

so if CPU0 gets into unqueue path of osq_lock it will keep spinning
in infinite loop as condition prev->next == node will never be true.
