[PATCH 5.16 0065/1017] SUNRPC: avoid race between mod_timer() and del_timer_sync()

commit 3848e96edf4788f772d83990022fa7023a233d83 upstream.

xprt_destory() claims XPRT_LOCKED and then calls del_timer_sync().
Both xprt_unlock_connect() and xprt_release() call
which drops XPRT_LOCKED and *then* xprt_schedule_autodisconnect()
which calls mod_timer().

This may result in mod_timer() being called *after* del_timer_sync().
When this happens, the timer may fire long after the xprt has been freed,
and run_timer_softirq() will probably crash.

The pairing of ->release_xprt() and xprt_schedule_autodisconnect() is
always called under ->transport_lock. So if we take ->transport_lock to
call del_timer_sync(), we can be sure that mod_timer() will run first
(if it runs at all).
