SUNRPC: Ensure we release the socket write lock if the rpc_task exits early
If the rpc_task exits while holding the socket write lock before it has allocated an rpc slot, then the usual mechanism for releasing the write lock in xprt_release() is defeated. The problem occurs if the call to xprt_lock_write() initially fails, so that the rpc_task is put on the xprt->sending wait queue. If the task exits after being assigned the lock by __xprt_lock_write_func, but before it has retried the call to xprt_lock_and_alloc_slot(), then it calls xprt_release() while holding the write lock, but will immediately exit due to the test for task->tk_rqstp != NULL.
