Nope. Before I even reverted the wake_q bits, I assembled a tree with
the ww_mutex changes completely removed to be absolutely certain that
they were innocent, and it indeed did retain its lost wakeup woes
despite complete loss of newfangled ww_mutex. 5.13-rt acquired those
same wakeup woes by receiving ONLY the wake_q bits, and 5.14-rt was
cured of those woes by ONLY them being reverted. I'm not seeing the
why, but those bits are either the source or the trigger of 5.14-rt
lost wakeup woes... they're toxic in some way shape fashion or form.
