fs: aio: fix the increment of aio-nr and counting against aio-max-nr



Currently, aio-nr is incremented in steps of 'num_possible_cpus() * 8'
for io_setup(nr_events, ..) with 'nr_events < num_possible_cpus() * 4':

    ioctx_alloc()
    ...
        nr_events = max(nr_events, num_possible_cpus() * 4);
        nr_events *= 2;
    ...
        ctx->max_reqs = nr_events;
    ...
        aio_nr += ctx->max_reqs;
    ....

This limits the number of aio contexts actually available to much less
than aio-max-nr, and is increasingly worse with greater number of CPUs.

For example, with 64 CPUs, only 256 aio contexts are actually available
(with aio-max-nr = 65536) because the increment is 512 in that scenario.

Note: 65536 [max aio contexts] / (64*4*2) [increment per aio context]
is 128, but make it 256 (double) as counting against 'aio-max-nr * 2':

    ioctx_alloc()
    ...
        if (aio_nr + nr_events > (aio_max_nr * 2UL) ||
        ...
            goto err_ctx;
    ...

This patch uses the original value of nr_events (from userspace) to
increment aio-nr and count against aio-max-nr, which resolves those.
