Lockdep reports that we may deadlock when calling wake_up() in
__kfence_alloc(), because we may already hold base->lock. This can
happen if debug objects are enabled:

    ...
    __kfence_alloc+0xa0/0xbc0 mm/kfence/core.c:710
    kfence_alloc include/linux/kfence.h:108 [inline]
    ...
    kmem_cache_zalloc include/linux/slab.h:672 [inline]
    fill_pool+0x264/0x5c0 lib/debugobjects.c:171
    __debug_object_init+0x7a/0xd10 lib/debugobjects.c:560
    debug_object_init lib/debugobjects.c:615 [inline]
    debug_object_activate+0x32c/0x3e0 lib/debugobjects.c:701
    debug_timer_activate kernel/time/timer.c:727 [inline]
    __mod_timer+0x77d/0xe30 kernel/time/timer.c:1048
    ...

Therefore, switch to an open-coded wait loop. The difference to before
is that the waiter wakes up and rechecks the condition after 1 jiffy;
however, given the infrequency of kfence allocations, the difference is
insignificant.
