A fix for a potential stall on umount caused by the MDS dropping
our REQUEST_CLOSE message.  The code that handled this case was
inadvertently disabled in 5.9, this patch removes it entirely and
fixes the problem in a way that is consistent with ceph-fuse.
ceph: check session state after bumping session->s_seq

Some messages sent by the MDS entail a session sequence number
increment, and the MDS will drop certain types of requests on the floor
when the sequence numbers don't match.

In particular, a REQUEST_CLOSE message can cross with one of the
sequence morphing messages from the MDS which can cause the client to
stall, waiting for a response that will never come.

Originally, this meant an up to 5s delay before the recurring workqueue
job kicked in and resent the request, but a recent change made it so
that the client would never resend, causing a 60s stall unmounting and
sometimes a blockisting event.

Add a new helper for incrementing the session sequence and then testing
to see whether a REQUEST_CLOSE needs to be resent, and move the handling
of CEPH_MDS_SESSION_CLOSING into that function. Change all of the
bare sequence counter increments to use the new helper.

Reorganize check_session_state with a switch statement.  It should no
longer be called when the session is CLOSING, so throw a warning if it
ever is (but still handle that case sanely).
