    tier/ctr: Solution for db locks for tier migrator and ctr using sqlite
version less than 3.7 i.e rhel 6.7

    Problem: On RHEL 6.7, we have sqlite version 3.6.2 which doesnt support
    WAL journaling mode, as this journaling mode is only available in sqlite
3.7 and above.
    As a result we cannot have to progreses concurrently accessing sqlite,
    running into db locks! Well WAL is also need for performace on CTR side.

    Solution: This solution is to use CTR db connection for doing queries when
WAL mode is
    absent. i,e tier migrator will send sync_op ipc calls to CTR, which in turn
    do the query and create/update the query file suggested by tier migrator.

    Pending: Well this solution will stop the db locks but the performance is
still an issue for CTR.
    We are developing an in-Memory Transaction Log (iMeTaL) which will help
boost the CTR
    performance by doing in memory udpates on the IO path and later flush the
updates to
    the db in a batch/segment flush.
