[Gluster-devel] glusterfs process and deleted file handles

I'm seeing something peculiar. lsof is showing glusterfs as having 
deleted file handles open in the backing store. That's fine, those file 
handles are open by the process running on top of it. But the process 
running on top of glusterfs isn't showing the same file handle as 
deleted. That seems odd. Is that normal?

The deleted files in question were prelink files. Restarting the 
processes having those handles open cleared them. I'd still like to 
know, though, why they were showing as deleted in the backing store but 
this wasn't being passed up to the mounted level.
