gfapi: async fops should unref in callbacks
If fd is unref'd at the end of async call then the unref in cbks would lead to double unref and possible crash. Removing duplicate unrefs. Added unref only in failure cases. A simple test case has been added to test async write case. Need to extend the same for other async APIs too. Details: All glfd based calls in libgfapi, except for glfs_open and glfs_close, behave in the same way. At the start of the operation, they take a ref on glfd and fd. At the end of the operation, they unref it. Async calls are a little different as they unref in the cbk function. A successfull open call does not unref either the glfd or fd, thereby functioning as a reference for a OPEN file object. glfs_close makes a syncop_flush call sandwiched between a fd ref and unref(this can be removed, more on this below), followed by a call to glfs_mark_glfd_for_deletion which unrefs glfd and also calls glfs_fd_destroy as a release function thereby doing a unref on fd too. Functionally, there is no problem with how everything works when as described above. However, it is a little non-intuitive that we need to perform a fd_unref as a consequence of a implicit fd_ref that happens within glfs_resolve_fd. As we perform a GF_REF_GET(glfd) at the start of every operation, it would be worthwhile to remove the fd_ref that glfs_resovle_fd takes and do away with explicit fd_unref()s at the end of every operation. This is the same reason why we don't need the fd_ref in glfs_close. This is however not in the scope of this patch.
