AIO Coroutines shouldn't by managed by an AioContext different than the
one assigned when they are created. aio_co_enter avoids entering a
coroutine from a different AioContext, calling aio_co_schedule instead.

Scheduled coroutines are then entered by co_schedule_bh_cb using
qemu_coroutine_enter, which just calls qemu_aio_coroutine_enter with the
current AioContext obtained with qemu_get_current_aio_context.
Eventually, co->ctx will be set to the AioContext passed as an argument
to qemu_aio_coroutine_enter.

This means that, if an IO Thread's AioConext is being processed by the
Main Thread (due to aio_poll being called with a BDS AioContext, as it
happens in AIO_WAIT_WHILE among other places), the AioContext from some
coroutines may be wrongly replaced with the one from the Main Thread.

This is the root cause behind some crashes, mainly triggered by the
drain code at block/io.c. The most common are these abort and failed

456     if (scheduled) {
457         fprintf(stderr,
458                 "%s: Co-routine was already scheduled in '%s'\n",
459                 __func__, scheduled);
460         abort();
461     }

286     assert(mutex->holder == self);

But it's also known to cause random errors at different locations, and
even SIGSEGV with broken coroutine backtraces.

By using qemu_aio_coroutine_enter directly in co_schedule_bh_cb, we can
pass the correct AioContext as an argument, making sure co->ctx is not
wrongly altered.
