do_wait() wakeup optimization: change __wake_up_parent() to use filtered wakeup

Ratan Nalumasu reported that in a process with many threads doing
unnecessary wakeups.  Every waiting thread in the process wakes up to loop
through the children and see that the only ones it cares about are still
not ready.

Now that we have struct wait_opts we can change do_wait/__wake_up_parent
to use filtered wakeups.

We can make child_wait_callback() more clever later, right now it only
checks eligible_child().
