3.5.7.5 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

commit 6f13909f4fe9652f189b462c6c98767309000321 upstream.

We use resolve_symbol_wait(), which blocks if the module containing
the symbol is still loading.  However:

1) The module_wq we use is only woken after calling the modules' init
   function, but there are other failure paths after the module is
   placed in the linked list where we need to do the same thing.

2) wake_up() only wakes one waiter, and our waitqueue is shared by all
   modules, so we need to wake them all.

3) wake_up_all() doesn't imply a memory barrier: I feel happier calling
   it after we've grabbed and dropped the module_mutex, not just after
   the state assignment.
