sched, modules: Fix nested sleep in add_unformed_module()

This is a genuine bug in add_unformed_module(), we cannot use blocking
primitives inside a wait loop.

So rewrite the wait_event_interruptible() usage to use the fresh
wait_woken() stuff.

[ So this is probably complex to backport and the race wasn't reported AFAIK,
  so not marked for -stable. ]
