block: fix use-after-free in sys_ioprio_get()

get_task_ioprio() accesses the task->io_context without holding the task
lock and thus can race with exit_io_context(), leading to a
use-after-free. The reproducer below hits this within a few seconds on
my 4-core QEMU VM:

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
	pid_t pid, child;
	long nproc, i;

	/* ioprio_set(IOPRIO_WHO_PROCESS, 0, IOPRIO_PRIO_VALUE(IOPRIO_CLASS_IDLE, 0)); */
	syscall(SYS_ioprio_set, 1, 0, 0x6000);

	nproc = sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN);

	for (i = 0; i < nproc; i++) {
		pid = fork();
		assert(pid != -1);
		if (pid == 0) {
			for (;;) {
				pid = fork();
				assert(pid != -1);
				if (pid == 0) {
					_exit(0);
				} else {
					child = wait(NULL);
					assert(child == pid);
				}
			}
		}

		pid = fork();
		assert(pid != -1);
		if (pid == 0) {
			for (;;) {
				/* ioprio_get(IOPRIO_WHO_PGRP, 0); */
				syscall(SYS_ioprio_get, 2, 0);
			}
		}
	}

	for (;;) {
		/* ioprio_get(IOPRIO_WHO_PGRP, 0); */
		syscall(SYS_ioprio_get, 2, 0);
	}

	return 0;
}

This gets us KASAN dumps like this:

Fix it by grabbing the task lock while we poke at the io_context.
