Should be able to unlock a post outside of ajax handler

Right now you can programmatically lock a post for editing using wp_set_post_lock, but you can't unlock it in a similar fashion. The only unlocking code is found in the ajax handler wp_ajax_wp_remove_post_lock.
I've created a function wp_unset_post_lock in the style of wp_set_post_lock that unlocks a post with a given ID. I've also refactored wp_ajax_wp_remove_post_lock to use this function.
The only resulting difference is that we use the current user's ID instead of the one supplied in the ajax call, but since we're unlocking the post instead of locking it, it doesn't really matter who's ID is in the meta.
