Revert "futex_requeue_pi optimization"
This reverts commit d0aa7a70bf03b9de9e995ab272293be1f7937822. It not only introduced user space visible changes to the futex syscall, it is also non-functional and there is no way to fix it proper before the 2.6.22 release. The breakage report ( http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/5/12/17 ) went unanswered, and unfortunately it turned out that the concept is not feasible at all. It violates the rtmutex semantics badly by introducing a virtual owner, which hacks around the coupling of the user-space pi_futex and the kernel internal rt_mutex representation. At the moment the only safe option is to remove it fully as it contains user-space visible changes to broken kernel code, which we do not want to expose in the 2.6.22 release. The patch reverts the original patch mostly 1:1, but contains a couple of trivial manual cleanups which were necessary due to patches, which touched the same area of code later. Verified against the glibc tests and my own PI futex tests.
