    cluster/tier: add watermarks and policy driver

    Backport fix 12039

    This fix introduces infrastructure to support different
    policies for promotion and demotion.

    Currently the tier feature automatically promotes and demotes
    files periodically based on access. This is good for testing
    but too stringent for most real workloads. It makes it
    difficult to fully utilize a hot tier- data will be demoted
    before it is touched- its unlikely a 100GB hot SSD will have
    all its data touched in a window of time.

    A new parameter "mode" allows the user to pick promotion/demotion

    The "test mode" will be used for *.t and other general testing.
    This is the current mechanism.

    The "cache mode" introduces watermarks. The watermarks
    represent levels of data residing on the hot tier.

    "cache mode" policy:

    The % the hot tier is full is called P.

    Do not promote or demote more than D MB or F files.

    A random number [0-100] is called R.

    Rules for migration:

    if (P < watermark_low) don't demote, always promote.

    if (P >= watermark_low) && (P < watermark_hi) demote if R < P; promote if R
> P.

    if (P > watermark_hi) always demote, don't promote.

    gluster volume set {vol} cluster.watermark-hi %
    gluster volume set {vol} cluster.watermark-low %
    gluster volume set {vol} cluster.tier-max-mb {D}
    gluster volume set {vol} cluster.tier-max-files {F}
    gluster volume set {vol} cluster.tier-mode {test|cache}
