kernel/futex: Kill rt_mutex_next_owner()

Update wake_futex_pi() and kill the call altogether. This is possible because:

(i) The case of fixup_owner() in which the pi_mutex was stolen from the
signaled enqueued top-waiter which fails to trylock and doesn't see a
current owner of the rtmutex but needs to acknowledge an non-enqueued
higher priority waiter, which is the other alternative. This used to be
handled by rt_mutex_next_owner(), which guaranteed fixup_pi_state_owner('newowner')
never to be nil. Nowadays the logic is handled by an EAGAIN loop, without
the need of rt_mutex_next_owner(). Specifically:

    c1e2f0eaf015 (futex: Avoid violating the 10th rule of futex)
    9f5d1c336a10 (futex: Handle transient "ownerless" rtmutex state correctly)

(ii) rt_mutex_next_owner() and rt_mutex_top_waiter() are semantically
equivalent, as of:

    c28d62cf52d7 (locking/rtmutex: Handle non enqueued waiters gracefully in remove_waiter())

So instead of keeping the call around, just use the good ole rt_mutex_top_waiter().
No change in semantics.
