Registering the same notifier to a hook repeatedly can cause the hook
list to form a ring or lose other members of the list.
so, need add a check in in notifier_chain_register(),
intercepting duplicate registrations to avoid infinite loops


v1:
* use notifier_chain_cond_register replace notifier_chain_register

v2:
* Add a check in notifier_chain_register() to avoid duplicate registration
* remove notifier_chain_cond_register() to avoid duplicate code 
* remove blocking_notifier_chain_cond_register() to avoid duplicate code

v3:
* Add a cover letter.

v4:
* Add Reviewed-by and adjust the title.
