Subject: [PATCH 22/78] libceph: transition socket state prior to actual

commit 89a86be0ce20022f6ede8bccec078dbb3d63caaa upstream.

Once we call ->connect(), we are racing against the actual
connection, and a subsequent transition from CONNECTING ->
CONNECTED.  Set the state to CONNECTING before that, under the
protection of the mutex, to avoid the race.

This was introduced in 928443cd9644e7cfd46f687dbeffda2d1a357ff9,
with the original socket state code.
