aio: protect reqs_available updates from changes in interrupt handlers

As of commit f8567a38

 it is now possible to
have put_reqs_available() called from irq context.  While put_reqs_available()
is per cpu, it did not protect itself from interrupts on the same CPU.  This
lead to aio_complete() corrupting the available io requests count when run
under a heavy O_DIRECT workloads as reported by Robert Elliott.  Fix this by
disabling irq updates around the per cpu batch updates of reqs_available.

Many thanks to Robert and folks for testing and tracking this down.
