do_wait() wakeup optimization: child_wait_callback: check __WNOTHREAD case



Suggested by Roland.

do_wait(__WNOTHREAD) can only succeed if the caller is either ptracer, or
it is ->real_parent and the child is not traced. IOW, caller == p->parent
otherwise we should not wake up.

Change child_wait_callback() to check this. Ratan reports the workload with
CPU load >99% caused by unnecessary wakeups, should be fixed by this patch.
