lockdep false positive - move txg_kick() outside of ->dp_lock

Description

lockdep false positive - move txg_kick() outside of ->dp_lock

This fixes a lockdep warning by breaking a link between ->tx_sync_lock
and ->dp_lock.

The deadlock envisioned by lockdep is this:

thread 1 holds db->db_mtx and tries to get dp->dp_lock:

dsl_pool_dirty_space+0x70/0x2d0 [zfs]
dbuf_dirty+0x778/0x31d0 [zfs]

    thread 2 holds bpo->bpo_lock and tries to get db->db_mtx:
        dmu_buf_will_dirty_impl
        dmu_buf_will_dirty+0x6b/0x6c0 [zfs]
        bpobj_iterate_impl+0xbe6/0x1410 [zfs]

    thread 3 holds tx->tx_sync_lock and tries to get bpo->bpo_lock:
        bpobj_space+0x63/0x470 [zfs]
        dsl_scan_active+0x340/0x3d0 [zfs]
        txg_sync_thread+0x3f2/0x1370 [zfs]

    thread 4 holds dp->dp_lock and tries to get tx->tx_sync_lock
       txg_kick+0x61/0x420 [zfs]
       dsl_pool_need_dirty_delay+0x1c7/0x3f0 [zfs]

This patch is orginally from Brian Behlendorf and slightly simplified
by me.

It breaks this cycle in thread 4 by moving the call from
dsl_pool_need_dirty_delay to txg_kick outside the section controlled
by dp->dp_lock.
