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

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

From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com>

commit 1166fde6a923c30f4351515b6a9a1efc513e7d00 upstream.

We need to be careful when testing task->tk_waitqueue in
rpc_wake_up_task_queue_locked, because it can be changed while we
are holding the queue->lock.
By adding appropriate memory barriers, we can ensure that it is safe to
test task->tk_waitqueue for equality if the RPC_TASK_QUEUED bit is set.
