scsi: libiscsi: Hold back_lock when calling iscsi_complete_task

If there is an error queueing an iscsi command in iscsi_queuecommand(), for
example if the transport fails to take the command in
sessuin->tt->xmit_task(), then the error path can call
iscsi_complete_task() without first aquiring the back_lock as
required. This can lead to things like ITT pool can get corrupt, resulting
in duplicate ITTs being sent out.

The solution is to hold the back_lock around iscsi_complete_task() calls,
and to add a little commenting to help others understand when back_lock
must be held.
