Subject[013/114] ocfs2/dlm: fix a dead lock
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Wengang Wang <wen.gang.wang@oracle.com>

commit 6d98c3ccb52f692f1a60339dde7c700686a5568b upstream.

When we have to take both dlm->master_lock and lockres->spinlock,
take them in order

lockres->spinlock and then dlm->master_lock.

The patch fixes a violation of the rule.
We can simply move taking dlm->master_lock to where we have dropped res->spinlock
since when we access res->state and free mle memory we don't need master_lock's
protection.
