That will teach me about that anonymous fd. Reading the code it seems
afr-self-heald.c code does opendir and use the fd for readdir syncop,
which suggest underlying xlator will use the same DIR *, but logging in
index.c I can see it calls opendir/closedir on each readdir.

Not yet. I asked in the relevant mailing list and I still await for a
reply. I suspect we hit a dark area within a grey area :-)
