It's possible that requests start to wait each other in
mirror_wait_on_conflicts(). To avoid it let's use same technique as in
block/io.c in bdrv_wait_serialising_requests_locked() /
bdrv_find_conflicting_request(): don't wait on intersecting request if
it is already waiting for some other request.

For details of the dead-lock look at testIntersectingActiveIO()
test-case which we actually fixing now.

Fixes: d06107ade0ce74dc39739bac80de84b51ec18546

Note, that I failed to run the test on d06107ade0ce74d, that introduces
active mirror. But it seems that the problem should exit in it too, and
it's better to leave "Fixes:" tag than don't do it.
