ipc/sem.c: add a printk_once for semctl(GETNCNT/GETZCNT)
The actual Linux implementation for semctl(GETNCNT) and semctl(GETZCNT)
always (since 0.99.10) reported a thread as sleeping on all semaphores
that are listed in the semop() call.
The documented behavior (both in the Linux man page and in the Single
Unix Specification) is that a task should be reported on exactly one
semaphore: The semaphore that caused the thread to got to sleep.
This patch adds a pr_info_once() that is triggered if a thread hits the
The code triggers slightly too often, otherwise it would be necessary to
replicate the old code. As there are no known users of GETNCNT or
GETZCNT, this is done to prevent unnecessary bloat.
The task that triggered is reported with name (tsk->comm) and pid.
