[SRU][F/J/K/L][PATCH 1/1] media: dvb-core: Fix kernel WARNING for blocking operation in wait_event*()

From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai at suse.de>

Using a semaphore in the wait_event*() condition is no good idea.
It hits a kernel WARN_ON() at prepare_to_wait_event() like:
  do not call blocking ops when !TASK_RUNNING; state=1 set at
  prepare_to_wait_event+0x6d/0x690

For avoiding the potential deadlock, rewrite to an open-coded loop
instead.  Unlike the loop in wait_event*(), this uses wait_woken()
after the condition check, hence the task state stays consistent.

CVE-2023-31084 was assigned to this bug.
