cfq-iosched: Fix wrong children_weight calculation

cfq_group_service_tree_add() is applying new_weight at the beginning of
the function via cfq_update_group_weight().
This actually allows weight to change between adding it to and subtracting
it from children_weight, and triggers WARN_ON_ONCE() in
cfq_group_service_tree_del(), or even causes oops by divide error during
vfr calculation in cfq_group_service_tree_add().

The detailed scenario is as follows:
1. Create blkio cgroups X and Y as a child of X.
   Set X's weight to 500 and perform some I/O to apply new_weight.
   This X's I/O completes before starting Y's I/O.
2. Y starts I/O and cfq_group_service_tree_add() is called with Y.
3. cfq_group_service_tree_add() walks up the tree during children_weight
   calculation and adds parent X's weight (500) to children_weight of root.
   children_weight becomes 500.
4. Set X's weight to 1000.
5. X starts I/O and cfq_group_service_tree_add() is called with X.
6. cfq_group_service_tree_add() applies its new_weight (1000).
7. I/O of Y completes and cfq_group_service_tree_del() is called with Y.
8. I/O of X completes and cfq_group_service_tree_del() is called with X.
9. cfq_group_service_tree_del() subtracts X's weight (1000) from
   children_weight of root. children_weight becomes -500.
   This triggers WARN_ON_ONCE().
10. Set X's weight to 500.
11. X starts I/O and cfq_group_service_tree_add() is called with X.
12. cfq_group_service_tree_add() applies its new_weight (500) and adds it
    to children_weight of root. children_weight becomes 0. Calcularion of
    vfr triggers oops by divide error.

weight should be updated right before adding it to children_weight.
