Bugzilla: 1745606 1746217 1773517 1779036 1782111 1782175 1783965

external_snapshot_abort() calls to bdrv_set_backing_hd(), which
returns state->old_bs to the main AioContext, as it's intended to be
used then the BDS is going to be released. As that's not the case when
aborting an external snapshot, return it to the AioContext it was
before the call.

This issue can be triggered by issuing a transaction with two actions,
a proper blockdev-snapshot-sync and a bogus one, so the second will
trigger a transaction abort. This results in a crash with an stack
trace like this one:
