    vos: take RO volume offline during convertROtoRW
    The vos convertROtoRW command converts a RO volume into a RW volume.
    Unfortunately, the RO volume in question is not set as "out of service"
    during this process. As a result, accesses to the volume being converted
    can leave volume objects in an inconsistent state.
    Consider the following scenario:
    1. Create a volume on host_b and add replicas on host_a and host_b.
    $ vos create host_b a vol_1
    $ vos addsite host_b a vol_1
    $ vos addiste host_a a vol_1
    2. Mount the volume:
    $ fs mkmount /afs/.mycell/vol_1 vol_1
    $ vos release vol_1
    $ vos release root.cell
    3. Shutdown dafs on host_b:
    $ bos shutdown host_b dafs
    4. Remove RO reference to host_b from the vldb:
    $ vos remsite host_b a vol_1
    5. Attach the RO copy by touching it:
    $ fs flushall
    $ ls /afs/mycell/vol_1
    6. Convert RO copy to RW:
    $ vos convertROtoRW host_a a vol_1
    Notice that FSYNC_com_VolDone fails silently (FSYNC_BAD_STATE), leaving
    the volume object for the RO copy set as VOL_STATE_ATTACHED (on success,
    this volume should be set as VOL_STATE_DELETED).
    7. Add replica on host_a:
    $ vos addsite host_a a vol_1
    8. Wait until the "inUse" flag of the RO entry is cleared (or force this
    to happen by attaching multiple volumes).
    9. Release the volume:
    $ vos release vol_1
    Failed to start transaction on volume 536870922
    Volume not attached, does not exist, or not on line
    Error in vos release command.
    Volume not attached, does not exist, or not on line
    To fix this problem, take the RO volume offline during the vos
    convertROtoRW operation.
