As many of you aware, Gluster Eventing feature is available in Master. 
To add support to listen to the Events from GlusterFS Clients following 
changes are identified

- Change in Eventsd to listen to tcp socket instead of Unix domain 
socket. This enables Client to send message to Eventsd running in 
Storage node.
- On Client connection, share Port and Token details with Xdata
- Client gf_event will connect to this port and pushes the 
event(Includes Token)
- Eventsd validates Token, publishes events only if Token is valid.
