rpc: before freeing the volume options object, delete it from the list
* Suppose there is an xlator option which is considered by the xlator only if the source was built with debug mode enabled (the only example in the current code base is run-with-valgrind option for glusterd), then giving that option would make the process crash if the source was not built with debug mode enabled. Reason: In rpc, after getting the options symbol dynamically, it was stored in the newly allocated volume options structure and the structure's list head was added to the xlator's volume_options list. But while freeing the structure the list was not deleted. Thus when the list was traversed, already freed structure was accessed leading to segfault.
