[automated-testing] Supporting GD2 & GD1 in glusto-tests

I had a chat with Vijay and Akarsha yesterday. Here's a summary of what we

* We want to have two versions of the glustolibs-gluster library.
* We will create a new repo called glusto-libs. Nigel will create this
repo. To start off, we'll copy the content from glustolibs-gluster to this
* Akarsha will land changes to this library to support GD2. Vijay and
Akarsha will take responsibility for keeping them in sync in terms of
features that apply in both places.
* Given that moving the current version which supports 3.x to this repo
will break a bunch of automation both upstream and downstream, we will
defer it to the future. However, this is the end goal.
* Akarsha will look at marking tests that are relevant for GD2 in the
existing tests so we can have a glusterfs + GD2 sanity test (before going
to the container layer).
