Fix sx_try_slock(), so it only fails when there is an exclusive owner.
Before that fix, it was possible for the function to fail if number
of sharers changes between 'x = sx->sx_lock' step and atomic_cmpset_acq_ptr()
This fixes ZFS problem when ZFS returns strange EIO errors under load.
In ZFS there is a code that depends on the fact that sx_try_slock() can
only fail if there is an exclusive owner.
