NFSv4.1: Hold reference to layout hdr in layoutget

This fixes an oops where a LAYOUTGET is in still in the rpciod queue,
but the requesting processes has been killed.  Without this, killing
the process does the final pnfs_put_layout_hdr() and sets NFS_I(inode)->layout
to NULL while the LAYOUTGET rpc task still references it.

Example oops:
