[Gluster-devel] Bug in unify rename

If you attempt to rename a file on a unify subvolume that is unavailable,
the operation will fail, however the file in the namespace will be renamed
regardless. When the volume comes back online, the old file will be self-healed
back into the namespace, and the renamed file will not be present on any

For example:
[file /clusterfs/foo exists on a currently inaccessible volume and in
the namespace]

# mv /clusterfs/foo /clusterfs/bert
mv: cannot move `/clusterfs/foo' to `/clusterfs/bert': No such file or directory
[exitstatus = 1]
