aio: lookup_ioctx can return the wrong value when looking up a bogus context

The libaio test harness turned up a problem whereby lookup_ioctx on a
bogus io context was returning the 1 valid io context from the list
(harness/cases/3.p).

Because of that, an extra put_iocontext was done, and when the process
exited, it hit a BUG_ON in the put_iocontext macro called from exit_aio
(since we expect a users count of 1 and instead get 0).

The problem was introduced by "aio: make the lookup_ioctx() lockless"
(commit abf137dd).

Thanks to Zach for pointing out that hlist_for_each_entry_rcu will not
return with a NULL tpos at the end of the loop, even if the entry was
not found.
