[PATCH RT v2] locking/rtmutex: don't drop the wait_lock twice

From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior
Date: Thu Sep 21 2017 - 14:49:49 EST

Since the futex rework, __rt_mutex_start_proxy_lock() does no longer
acquire the wait_lock so it must not drop it. Otherwise the lock is not
only unlocked twice but also the preemption counter is underflown.

It is okay to remove that line because this function does not disable
interrupts nor does it acquire the ->wait_lock. The caller does this
so it is wrong do it here (after the futex rework).
