kvm,x86: Fix apf_task_wake_one() wq serialization

During code inspection, the following potential race was seen:

CPU0   	    		    	     	CPU1
kvm_async_pf_task_wait			apf_task_wake_one
					  [L] swait_active(&n->wq)
  [S] prepare_to_swait(&n.wq)
  [L] if (!hlist_unhahed(&n.link))
	schedule()			  [S] hlist_del_init(&n->link);

Properly serialize swait_active() checks such that a wakeup is
not missed.
