Fix a direct I/O locking issue revealed by the new mutex code.

Affects only XFS (i.e. DIO_OWN_LOCKING case) - currently it is
not possible to get i_mutex locking correct when using DIO_OWN
direct I/O locking in a filesystem due to indeterminism in the
possible return code/lock/unlock combinations.  This can cause
a direct read to attempt a double i_mutex unlock inside XFS.

We're now ensuring __blockdev_direct_IO always exits with the
inode i_mutex (still) held for a direct reader.

Tested with the three different locking modes (via direct block
device access, ext3 and XFS) - both reading and writing; cannot
find any regressions resulting from this change, and it clearly
fixes the mutex_unlock warning originally reported here:
