9P: Fix race in p9_read_work()

Race scenario between p9_read_work() and p9_poll_mux()

Data arrive, Rworksched is set, p9_read_work() is called.

thread A                                thread B

                                        p9_read_work()
                                                .
                                        reads data
                                                .
                                        checks if new data ready. No.
                                                .
                                        gets preempted
                                                .
More data arrive, p9_poll_mux() is called.      .
                                                .
                                                .
p9_poll_mux()                                   .
                                                .
if (!test_and_set_bit(Rworksched,               .
                      &m->wsched)) {            .
  schedule_work(&m->rq);                        .
}                                               .
                                                .
-> does not schedule work because               .
   Rworksched is set                            .
                                                .
                                        clear_bit(Rworksched, &m->wsched);
                                        return;

No work has been scheduled, and yet data are waiting.

Currently p9_read_work() checks if there is data to read,
and if not, it clears Rworksched.

I think it should clear Rworksched first, and then check if there is data to read.
