Before this patch, function rgrp_go_inval would not invalidate the
ail list, which meant that there might still be buffers outstanding
on the ail that had revokes still pending. If the revokes had still
not been written when the glock was given to another node, and that
node (with outstanding revokes) died for some reason, the resulting
journal replay would replay the un-revoked rgrps, thus wiping out
changes made by the node who rightfully received the rgrp in EX.
This caused metadata corruption.
