[GFS2] Use list_for_each_entry_safe_reverse in gfs2_ail1_start()

This is an attempt to fix Red Hat bz 204364. I don't hit it all
the time, but with these changes, running postmark which used to
trigger it on a regular basis no longer appears to. So I'm not
saying that its 100% certain that its fixed, but it does look
promising at the moment.
