crash in md-raid1 and md-raid10 due to incorrect list manipulation

The commit 55ce74d4 (md/raid1: ensure
device failure recorded before write request returns) is causing crash in
the LVM2 testsuite test shell/ For me the crash is 100%

The reason for the crash is that the newly added code in raid1d moves the
list from conf->bio_end_io_list to tmp, then tests if tmp is non-empty and
then incorrectly pops the bio from conf->bio_end_io_list (which is empty
because the list was alrady moved).

Raid-10 has a similar bug.
