gfs2: Force withdraw to replay journals and wait for it to finish

When a node withdraws from a file system, it often leaves its journal
in an incomplete state. This is especially true when the withdraw is
caused by io errors writing to the journal. Before this patch, a
withdraw would try to write a "shutdown" record to the journal, tell
dlm it's done with the file system, and none of the other nodes
know about the problem. Later, when the problem is fixed and the
withdrawn node is rebooted, it would then discover that its own
journal was incomplete, and replay it. However, replaying it at this
point is almost guaranteed to introduce corruption because the other
nodes are likely to have used affected resource groups that appeared
in the journal since the time of the withdraw. Replaying the journal
later will overwrite any changes made, and not through any fault of
dlm, which was instructed during the withdraw to release those

This patch makes file system withdraws seen by the entire cluster.
Withdrawing nodes dequeue their journal glock to allow recovery.

The remaining nodes check all the journals to see if they are
clean or in need of replay. They try to replay dirty journals, but
only the journals of withdrawn nodes will be "not busy" and
therefore available for replay.

Until the journal replay is complete, no i/o related glocks may be
given out, to ensure that the replay does not cause the
aforementioned corruption: We cannot allow any journal replay to
overwrite blocks associated with a glock once it is held.

The "live" glock which is now used to signal when a withdraw
occurs. When a withdraw occurs, the node signals its withdraw by
dequeueing the "live" glock and trying to enqueue it in EX mode,
thus forcing the other nodes to all see a demote request, by way
of a "1CB" (one callback) try lock. The "live" glock is not
granted in EX; the callback is only just used to indicate a
withdraw has occurred.

Note that all nodes in the cluster must wait for the recovering
node to finish replaying the withdrawing node's journal before
continuing. To this end, it checks that the journals are clean
multiple times in a retry loop.

Also note that the withdraw function may be called from a wide
variety of situations, and therefore, we need to take extra
precautions to make sure pointers are valid before using them in
many circumstances.

We also need to take care when glocks decide to withdraw, since
the withdraw code now uses glocks.

Also, before this patch, if a process encountered an error and
decided to withdraw, if another process was already withdrawing,
the second withdraw would be silently ignored, which set it free
to unlock its glocks. That's correct behavior if the original
withdrawer encounters further errors down the road. But if
secondary waiters don't wait for the journal replay, unlocking
glocks will allow other nodes to use them, despite the fact that
the journal containing those blocks is being replayed. The
replay needs to finish before our glocks are released to other
nodes. IOW, secondary withdraws need to wait for the first
withdraw to finish.

For example, if an rgrp glock is unlocked by a process that didn't
wait for the first withdraw, a journal replay could introduce file
system corruption by replaying a rgrp block that has already been
granted to a different cluster node.
