All paths that lead to bdrv_backup_top_drop(), except for the call
from backup_clean(), imply that the BDS AioContext has already been
acquired, so doing it there too can potentially lead to QEMU hanging

An easy way to trigger this situation is by issuing a two actions
transaction, with a proper and a bogus blockdev-backup, so the second
one will trigger a rollback. This will trigger a hang with an stack
trace like this one:

Fix this by not acquiring the AioContext there, and ensuring all paths
leading to it have it already acquired (backup_clean()).
