Leetcode: Recover Binary Search Tree

Recover Binary Search Tree

Two elements of a binary search tree (BST) are swapped by mistake.

Recover the tree without changing its structure.


A solution using O(n) space is pretty straight forward. Could you devise a constant space solution?

## Basic Ideas:
##              It could be left-right swap or parent-child swap
##              It could also be two non-adjacent nodes
##              Identity the node. Then swap the value
##  Assumption: Whether the tree contains duplicates?
## Complexity:
# Definition for a binary tree node.
# class TreeNode(object):
#     def __init__(self, x):
#         self.val = x
#         self.left = None
#         self.right = None

class Solution(object):
    def recoverTree(self, root):
        :type root: TreeNode
        :rtype: void Do not return anything, modify root in-place instead.
        if root is None:
        # level tree trasversal
        queue = []
        while len(queue) != 0:
            for i in xrange(len(queue)):
                node = queue[0]
                del queue[0]
                # issue of left-right
                if node.left and node.right and node.left.val > node.right.val:
                    node.left.val, node.right.val = node.right.val, node.left.val
                # issue of parent-child
                if node.left and node.val < node.left.val:
                    node.val, node.left.val = node.left.val, node.val
                if node.right and node.val > node.right.val:
                    node.val, node.right.val = node.right.val, node.val
                if node.left:
                if node.right:
