    GFS2: Fix a use-after-free that coverity spotted
    In function gfs2_inplace_release it was trying to unlock a gfs2_holder
    structure associated with a reservation, after said reservation was
    freed. The problem is that the statements have the wrong order.
    This patch corrects the order so that the reservation is freed after
    the gfs2_holder is unlocked.
