I could see an extraneous bast leading to confusion in gfs2 about the lock
state, but gfs2 should probably be asserting somewhere before it actually
corrupts anything...

I haven't been able to figure out the problem or the fix; some printk's
around the case in question would be revealing.

This is the specific case where a TRY_1CB (NOQUEUBAST) conversion fails.
Here's how I step through the code for that case:

    error = do_convert(lkb)
        when error equals -EAGAIN, lkb remains on grantqueue
    do_convert_effects(lkb, -EAGAIN)
        -EAGAIN and NOQUEUEBAST -> send_blocking_asts_all ->
        send_bast_queue(grantqueue, lkb)
           [lkb is expected to be here, skip sending bast to self]
        send_bast_queue(convertqueue, lkb):
           [lkb should not be on here, but your patch implies there
            are cases where it can be?  I think that would be a bug.]
