direct-io: Use return from cmpxchg to decide of assignment happened

Not using the return value can in the generic case be racy, so it's
in general good practice to check the return value instead.

This also resolved the warning caused on ARM and other architectures:

  fs/direct-io.c: In function 'sb_init_dio_done_wq':
  fs/direct-io.c:557:2: warning: value computed is not used [-Wunused-value]
