    sched/wait: Rename wait_queue_t => wait_queue_entry_t · ac6424b9

    'wait_queue_t' was always a slight misnomer: its name implies that it's a "queue",
    but in reality it's a queue *entry*. The 'real' queue is the wait queue head,
    which had to carry the name.
    Start sorting this out by renaming it to 'wait_queue_entry_t'.
    This also allows the real structure name 'struct __wait_queue' to
    lose its double underscore and become 'struct wait_queue_entry',
    which is the more canonical nomenclature for such data types.
