[PATCH]Fix the order of atomic operations in restore_previous_kprobes on ia64

From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat_at_redhat.com>

From: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com>

Fix the order of atomic operations to prevent overwriting prev_kprobe[0].
To pop values from stack, we must decrement stack index right AFTER
reading values.
