We found there is a convertion deadlock when the owner of lockres
happened to crash before send DLM_PROXY_AST_MSG for a downconverting
lock. The situation is as follows:

Node1                            Node2                  Node3
                           the owner of lockresA
lock_1 granted at EX mode
and call ocfs2_cluster_unlock
to decrease ex_holders.
                                                 converting lock_3 from
                                                 NL to EX
                           send DLM_PROXY_AST_MSG
                           to Node1, asking Node 1
                           to downconvert.
receiving DLM_PROXY_AST_MSG,
thread ocfs2dc send
to Node2 to downconvert
                           lock_1 can be granted and
                           put it into pending_asts
                           list, return DLM_NORMAL.
                           then something happened
                           and Node2 crashed.
received DLM_NORMAL, waiting
                                               selected as the recovery
                                               master, receving migrate
                                               lock from Node1, queue
                                               lock_1 to the tail of
                                               converting list.

After dlm recovery, converting list in the master of lockresA(Node3)
will be: converting list head <-> lock_3(NL->EX) <->lock_1(EX<->NL).
Requested mode of lock_3 is not compatible with the granted mode of
lock_1, so it can not be granted. and lock_1 can not downconvert
because covnerting queue is strictly FIFO. So a deadlock is created.
We think function dlm_process_recovery_data() should queue_ast for
lock_1 or alter the order of lock_1 and lock_3, so dlm_thread can
process lock_1 first. And if there are multiple downconverting locks,
they must convert form PR to NL, so no need to sort them.
