+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1756938 +++

Description of problem:


I want to propose this for rhgs-3.5.1 as it can be really valuable for GSS to
be able to use the existing CLI commands to fix corner split-brain cases even
in replica 3.

Ever since we added quorum checks for lookups in afr via commit
bd44d59741bb8c0f5d7a62c5b1094179dd0ce8a4, the split-brain resolution
commands would not work for replica 3 because there would be no
readables for the lookup fop.

The argument was that split-brains do not occur in replica 3 but we do
see (data/metadata) split-brain cases once in a while which indicate that 
there are   a few bugs/corner cases yet to be discovered and fixed.

Fortunately, commit  8016d51a3bbd410b0b927ed66be50a09574b7982 added
GF_CLIENT_PID_GLFS_HEALD as the pid for all fops made by glfsheal. If we
leverage this and allow lookups when pid is GF_CLIENT_PID_GLFS_HEALD,
split-brain resolution commands will work for replica 3 volumes too.

Attempting a patch which does this.
