epoll: avoid calling ep_call_nested() from ep_poll_safewake()

ep_poll_safewake() is used to wakeup potentially nested epoll file
descriptors.  The function uses ep_call_nested() to prevent entering the
same wake up queue more than once, and to prevent excessively deep
wakeup paths (deeper than EP_MAX_NESTS).  However, this is not necessary
since we are already preventing these conditions during EPOLL_CTL_ADD.
This saves extra function calls, and avoids taking a global lock during
the ep_call_nested() calls.

I have, however, left ep_call_nested() for the CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC
case, since ep_call_nested() keeps track of the nesting level, and this
is required by the call to spin_lock_irqsave_nested().  It would be nice
to remove the ep_call_nested() calls for the CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC
case as well, however its not clear how to simply pass the nesting level
through multiple wake_up() levels without more surgery.  In any case, I
don't think CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC is generally used for production.
This patch, also apparently fixes a workload at Google that Salman Qazi
reported by completely removing the poll_safewake_ncalls->lock from
wakeup paths.
