ocfs2_data_convert_worker() is currently dropping any cached acl info
for FILE before down-converting meta lock. It should also drop for DIRECTORY.
Otherwise the second acl lookup returns the cached one (from VFS layer) which
could be already stale.

The problem we are seeing is that the acl changes on one node doesn't get
refreshed on other nodes in the following case:

 Node 1                    Node 2
--------------            ----------------
getfacl dir1

  getfacl dir1    <-- this is OK

setfacl -m u:user1:rwX dir1
getfacl dir1   <-- see the change for user1

  getfacl dir1    <-- can't see change for user1

Looks sane to me.
