cifs: fix potential double put of TCP session reference
cifs_get_smb_ses must be called on a server pointer on which it holds an active reference. It first does a search for an existing SMB session. If it finds one, it'll put the server reference and then try to ensure that the negprot is done, etc. If it encounters an error at that point then it'll return an error. There's a potential problem here though. When cifs_get_smb_ses returns an error, the caller will also put the TCP server reference leading to a double-put. Fix this by having cifs_get_smb_ses only put the server reference if it found an existing session that it could use and isn't returning an error.
