locking/rtmutex: Use READ_ONCE() in rt_mutex_owner()

commit 1be5d4fa0af34fb7bafa205aeb59f5c7cc7a089d upstream.

While debugging the rtmutex unlock vs. dequeue race Will suggested to use
READ_ONCE() in rt_mutex_owner() as it might race against the
cmpxchg_release() in unlock_rt_mutex_safe().

Will: "It's a minor thing which will most likely not matter in practice"

Careful search did not unearth an actual problem in todays code, but it's
better to be safe than surprised.
