rwsem: fully separate code paths to wake writers vs readers
This is in preparation for later changes in the series. In __rwsem_do_wake(), the first queued waiter is checked first in order to determine whether it's a writer or a reader. The code paths diverge at this point. The code that checks and increments the rwsem active count is duplicated on both sides - the point is that later changes in the series will be able to independently modify both sides.
