I did look at doing that but decided it would not be appropriate to do
that in all cases. i.e. there are hard deadlock cases where the autovac
can be the head of the lock queue and yet a deadlock still exists
between two other processes. The deadlock detector doesn't get called
twice for the same deadlock, so it wasn't possible to speculatively do
that and then re-catch it second time around.
