locking/rtmutex: Prevent spurious EDEADLK return caused by ww_mutexes

rtmutex based ww_mutexes can legitimately create a cycle in the lock graph
which can be observed by a blocker which didn't cause the problem:

   P1: A, ww_A, ww_B
   P2: ww_B, ww_A
   P3: A

P3 might therefore be trapped in the ww_mutex induced cycle and run into
the lock depth limitation of rt_mutex_adjust_prio_chain() which returns
-EDEADLK to the caller.

Disable the deadlock detection walk when the chain walk observes a
ww_mutex to prevent this looping.

[ tglx: Split it apart and added changelog ]
