I think all you need to do is something like: follow the first entry of
fl_blocked_requests, printing as you go, until you get down to lock with
empty fl_blocked_requests (a leaf of the tree). When you get to a leaf,
print, then follow fl_blocker back up and look for your parent's next
sibling on its fl_blocked_requests list. If there are no more siblings,
continue up to your grandparent, etc.

It's the traverse-a-maze-by-always-turning-left algorithm applied to a
tree. I think we do it elsewhere in the VFS.

You also need an integer that keeps track of your current indent depth.
But you don't need a stack.
