4.19.59-rt24-rc1 stable review patch.
If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

[ Upstream commit f1a170cb3289a48df26cae3c60d77608f7a988bb ]

Drop the RT fixup, the futex code will be changed to avoid the need for
the workaround.
