It is quite easy:
Enable log-slave-updates in the slave you want to be a master.
Do a mysqldump -e --master-data=2 and put that mysqldump in the future
slaves. Take a look at the first lines of the mysqldump where you'll find
the position and logfile those slaves need to start the replication from.
You can also use xtrabackup if you like.
