    afs: prevent double release of global lock afs_xvcb
    afs_GetServer calls ReleaseWriteLock(&afs_xvcb) twice within a few
    lines.  The second one is spurious.
    Commits b18653de7ae90491c2e75f4a98410581655d776c 'xserver lock order
    violation' and f2bf60ed4f1323cd6f74f2f01114f7e4f714db53 'xvcb lock order
    violation' were written by the same author at the same time and
    apparently were victims of a bad merge.
    Discovered during a lock audit project as a panic during afsd startup:
      assertion failed: (&afs_xvcb)->excl_locked == WRITE_LOCK, file:
      /home/mvitale/src/sna-openafs/src/afs/afs_server.c, line: 2089
    afs_GetServer is called frequently by many threads and so this bug could
    easily have released another thread's write lock on afs_xvcb.
    Remove the spurious second release.
