Subject: [PATCH 5/5] fuse: fix synchronous case of fuse_file_put()

If fuse_file_put() is called with sync==true, the user may be blocked for
a while, until userspace ACKs our FUSE_RELEASE request. This blocking must be
uninterruptible. Otherwise request could be interrupted, but file association
in user space remains.
