Subject: ocfs2: fix a tiny race case when firing callbacks

In o2hb_shutdown_slot() and o2hb_check_slot(), since event is defined as
local, it is only valid during the call stack.  So the following tiny race
case may happen in a multi-volumes mounted environment:

o2hb-vol1                         o2hb-vol2
1) o2hb_shutdown_slot
allocate local event1
2) queue_node_event
add event1 to global o2hb_node_events
                                  3) o2hb_shutdown_slot
                                  allocate local event2
                                  4) queue_node_event
                                  add event2 to global o2hb_node_events
                                  5) o2hb_run_event_list
                                  delete event1 from o2hb_node_events
6) o2hb_run_event_list
event1 empty, return
7) o2hb_shutdown_slot
event1 lifecycle ends
                                  8) o2hb_fire_callbacks
                                  event1 is already *invalid*

This patch lets it wait on o2hb_callback_sem when another thread is firing
callbacks.  And for performance consideration, we only call
o2hb_run_event_list when there is an event queued.
