Default GFS2: Move glock ref count drop out of finish_xmote

There have been a couple of instances reported recently where the
glock ref count has hit zero too soon. Since the only time when
this can happen is on the demote path (in other cases the ref count
is held elevated by the callers, as well as in the lock operation
itself) there is a good chance that the culprit is at the end
of finish_xmote.

This patch removes the ref count drop from the end of finish_xmote
and moves it into the callers of that function. This will ensure
that in future the ref count cannot be dropped too early.
