    1155073: Excessive logging in the self-heal daemon after a replace-brick
    1157661: GlusterFS allows insecure SSL modes

Known Issues:

  * The following configuration changes are necessary for 'qemu' and 'samba vfs plugin' integration with libgfapi to work seamlessly:

     1. gluster volume set <volname> server.allow-insecure on
     2. restarting the volume is necessary

         gluster volume stop <volname>
         gluster volume start <volname>

     3. Edit /etc/glusterfs/glusterd.vol to contain this line:

         option rpc-auth-allow-insecure on

     4. restarting glusterd is necessary

         service glusterd restart

        More details are also documented in the Gluster Wiki on the Libgfapi with qemu libvirt page.

  * For Block Device translator based volumes open-behind translator at the client side needs to be disabled.

  * gluster volume set <volname> performance.open-behind disabled

  * libgfapi clients calling glfs_fini before a successfull glfs_init will cause the client to hang as reported here. The workaround is NOT to call glfs_fini for error cases encountered before a successfull glfs_init. This is being tracked in Bug 1134050 for glusterfs-3.5 and Bug 1093594 for mainline.

  * If the /var/run/gluster directory does not exist enabling quota will likely fail (Bug 1117888).
