Default Handle multiple glock demote requests

From: Wendy Cheng <wcheng@redhat.com>

Fix a race condition where multiple glock demote requests are sent to
a node back-to-back. This patch does a check inside handle_callback()
to see whether a demote request is in progress. If true, it sets a flag
to make sure run_queue() will loop again to handle the new request,
instead of erronously setting gl_demote_state to a different state.
