COMMIT: https://review.gluster.org/20704 committed in master by "Amar Tumballi"
<amarts at redhat.com> with a commit message- geo-rep: Fix deadlock during worker

Monitor process spawns monitor threads (one per brick).
Each monitor thread, forks worker and agent processes.
Each monitor thread, while intializing, updates the
monitor status file. It is synchronized using flock.
The race is that, some thread can fork worker while
other thread opened the status file resulting in
holding the reference of fd in worker process.

flock gets unlocked either by specifically unlocking it
or by closing all duplicate fds referring to the file.
The code was relying on fd close, hence a reference
in worker/agent process by fork could cause the deadlock.

1. flock is unlocked specifically.
2. Also made sure to update status file in approriate places so that
the reference is not leaked to worker/agent process.

With this fix, both the deadlock and possible fd
leaks is solved.
