As you have pointed out above, the file is created with 0:0
owner:group but subsequent operations change owner and group using
chown and chgrp. This is because the glusterfsd(brick daemon) process
always runs as root. I don't know the exact reason why setfsuid and
setfsgid are not used although the code exist.
Do you know why HAVE_SET_FSID is undefined in line
