afs: Fix server record deletion
AFS server records get removed from the net->fs_servers tree when they're deleted, but not from the net->fs_addresses{4,6} lists, which can lead to an oops in afs_find_server() when a server record has been removed, for instance during rmmod. Fix this by deleting the record from the by-address lists before posting it for RCU destruction. The reason this hasn't been noticed before is that the fileserver keeps probing the local cache manager, thereby keeping the service record alive, so the oops would only happen when a fileserver eventually gets bored and stops pinging or if the module gets rmmod'd and a call comes in from the fileserver during the window between the server records being destroyed and the socket being closed. The oops looks something like: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 000000000000001c ...
