blk-iocost: fix operation ordering in iocg_wake_fn()
iocg_wake_fn() open-codes wait_queue_entry removal and wakeup because it wants the wq_entry to be always removed whether it ended up waking the task or not. finish_wait() tests whether wq_entry needs removal without grabbing the wait_queue lock and expects the waker to use list_del_init_careful() after all waking operations are complete, which iocg_wake_fn() didn't do. The operation order was wrong and the regular list_del_init() was used. The result is that if a waiter wakes up racing the waker, it can free pop the wq_entry off stack before the waker is still looking at it, which can lead to a backtrace like the following.
