[Gluster-devel] 3.3 requires extended attribute on /

The assumption of EA being enabled in / filesystem or any prefix of brick path
is an accidental side-effect of the way glusterd_is_path_in_use() is used
in glusterd_brick_create_path().
The error handling should be accommodative to ENOTSUP.
In short it is a bug. Will send out a patch immediately.

Subject: [Gluster-devel] 3.3 requires extended attribute on /

On release-3.3, glusterd_is_path_in_use() in
xlators/mgmt/glusterd/src/glusterd-utils.c seems to assume that / has
extended attribute enabled, and makes it impossible to create a volume
with bricks from other filesystems (with EA enabled), if / does not
support extended attributes. 

Is it on purpose?
