switch fput to task_work_add

... and schedule_work() for interrupt/kernel_thread callers
(and yes, now it *is* OK to call from interrupt).

We are guaranteed that __fput() will be done before we return
to userland (or exit).  Note that for fput() from a kernel
thread we get an async behaviour; it's almost always OK, but
sometimes you might need to have __fput() completed before
you do anything else.  There are two mechanisms for that -
a general barrier (flush_delayed_fput()) and explicit
__fput_sync().  Both should be used with care (as was the
case for fput() from kernel threads all along).  See comments
in fs/file_table.c for details.
