[PATCH] VFS: Fix memory leak with file leases

The patch introduced a pretty nasty memory leak in the lease code. When freeing
the lease, the code in locks_delete_lock() will correctly clean up
the fasync queue, but when we return to fcntl_setlease(), the freed
fasync entry will be reinstated.

This patch ensures that we skip the call to fasync_helper() when we're
freeing up the lease.
