[ Upstream commit 9673e0050c39b0534d0e2ca431223f52089f4959 ]

Usually, ocfs2_downconvert_lock() function always downconverts dlm lock to
the expected level for satisfy dlm bast requests from the other nodes.

But there is a rare situation. When dlm lock conversion is being
canceled, ocfs2_downconvert_lock() function will return -EBUSY. You need
to be aware that ocfs2_cancel_convert() function is asynchronous in fsdlm

If we does not requeue this lockres entry, ocfs2 downconvert thread no
longer handles this dlm lock bast request. Then, the other nodes will not
get the dlm lock again, the current node's process will be blocked when
acquire this dlm lock again.
