Prevent accidental multiple click when creating new categories

It is possible to click the "Add New Category" button multiple times when creating a new category from the new post screen.

In certain cases, the extra clicks can cause (mostly harmless) fatal errors because of a race condition in _wp_ajax_add_hierarchical_term().

Attached disables the button via JS after the first click and re-enables it after the AJAX request completes (successfully or not).
