libceph: drop ceph_osd_request->r_con_filling_msg
A field in an osd request keeps track of whether a connection is currently filling the request's reply message. This patch gets rid of that field. An osd request includes two messages--a request and a reply--and they're both associated with the connection that existed to its the target osd at the time the request was created. An osd request can be dropped early, even when it's in flight. And at that time both messages are released. It's possible the reply message has been supplied to its connection to receive an incoming response message at the time the osd request gets dropped. So ceph_osdc_release_request() revokes that message from the connection before releasing it so things get cleaned up properly. Previously this may have caused a problem, because the connection that a message was associated with might have gone away before the revoke request. And to avoid any problems using that connection, the osd client held a reference to it when it supplies its response message. However since this commit: 38941f80 libceph: have messages point to their connection all messages hold a reference to the connection they are associated with whenever the connection is actively operating on the message (i.e. while the message is queued to send or sending, and when it data is being received into it). And if a message has no connection associated with it, ceph_msg_revoke_incoming() won't do anything when asked to revoke it. As a result, there is no need to keep an additional reference to the connection associated with a message when we hand the message to the messenger when it calls our alloc_msg() method to receive something. If the connection *were* operating on it, it would have its own reference, and if not, there's no work to be done when we need to revoke it. So get rid of the osd request's r_con_filling_msg field.
