Subject: [PATCH] Ticket 49410 - opened connection can remain no longer poll,
 like hanging

Bug Description:
	Some opened connection are no longer poll.
	Those connections has 'gettingber' toggle set although there is
	no more worker thread reading it.
	The reason they have gettingber set is that the last
	operation had 'persistent search' flag. With such flag
	gettingber is not reset.
	persistent flag is set even when no persistent search/sync_repl
	was received on the connection.
	The problem is that the flag is tested on the wrong operation.
	The tested operation can be
		- the first operation when the connection entered in turbo mode
		- the previous operation if several ops PDUs were read on the network
		- accessing random memory

	In theory testing the flag can lead to sigsev even
	if it never crash

Fix Description:
	The fix is to use the operation that is in the pblock
	In such case pb_op is no longer used, so we can get rid of it.
	In addition make pb_conn a local variable where it is used
