md/raid5: fix locking in handle_stripe_clean_event()

After commit 566c09c5 ("raid5: relieve lock contention in get_active_stripe()")
__find_stripe() is called under conf->hash_locks + hash.
But handle_stripe_clean_event() calls remove_hash() under

Under some cirscumstances the hash chain can be circuited,
and we get an infinite loop with disabled interrupts and locked hash
lock in __find_stripe(). This leads to hard lockup on multiple CPUs
and following system crash.

I was able to reproduce this behavior on raid6 over 6 ssd disks.
The devices_handle_discard_safely option should be set to enable trim
support. The following script was used:

for i in `seq 1 32`; do
    dd if=/dev/zero of=large$i bs=10M count=100 &

neilb: original was against a 3.x kernel.  I forward-ported
  to 4.3-rc.  This verison is suitable for any kernel since
  Commit: 59fc630b

 ("RAID5: batch adjacent full stripe write")
  (v4.1+).  I'll post a version for earlier kernels to stable.
