os: Don't crash in AttendClient if the client is gone

If a client is in the process of being closed down, then its client->osPrivate
pointer will be set to NULL by CloseDownConnection. This can cause a crash if
freeing the client's resources results in a call to AttendClient. For example,
if the client has a pending sync fence:

 Thread 1 "X" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Since the client is about to be freed, its ignore count doesn't matter and
AttendClient can simply be a no-op. Check for client->clientGone in AttendClient
and remove similar checks from two callers that had them.
