* number of readers before waking any processes up.

* We have to do wakeup in 2 passes to prevent the possibility that
* the reader count may be decremented before it is incremented. It
* is because the to-be-woken waiter may not have slept yet. So it
* may see waiter->task got cleared, finish its critical section and

* fully increment the reader count in rwsem.
* 2) For each waiters in the new list, clear waiter->task and
* put them into wake_q to be woken up later.
