Maybe it's just me, but I would find (!__base && !__waiting) to be a
clearer expression of the logic here.

i.e. "return if the wait is not bare and there are no waiters"
rather than "return if the wait is not either bare or has waiters".
The latter makes me take a second to grok.

The patch is OK either way though, with the ChangeLog typo fix.
