afs: Fix unpinned address list during probing

When it's probing all of a fileserver's interfaces to find which one is
best to use, afs_do_probe_fileserver() takes a lock on the server record
and notes the pointer to the address list.

It doesn't, however, pin the address list, so as soon as it drops the
lock, there's nothing to stop the address list from being freed under

Fix this by taking a ref on the address list inside the locked section
and dropping it at the end of the function.
