Fix a bad error case handling in read_cache_page_async()

Commit 6fe6900e

 introduced a nasty bug
in read_cache_page_async().

It added a "mark_page_accessed(page)" at the final return path in
read_cache_page_async().  But in error cases, 'page' holds the error
code, and you can't mark it accessed.

[ and Glauber de Oliveira Costa points out that we can use a return
  instead of adding more goto's ]
