Fix a race condition in FASYNC handling

Changeset a238b790 (Call fasync()
functions without the BKL) introduced a race which could leave
file->f_flags in a state inconsistent with what the underlying
driver/filesystem believes.  Revert that change, and also fix the same
races in ioctl_fioasync() and ioctl_fionbio().

This is a minimal, short-term fix; the real fix will not involve the
BKL.
