Pranith, Ravi,

While testing 3.10 I faced a hung FUSE mount, and on further debugging, 
it looks like there are 2 problems here,

1) A deadlock in gf_timer locks, when invoked from a fault signal handler

2) The fault itself being caused due to AFR inode ctx pointer being 
invalid, and hence a call to gf_timer_call_cancel causes the segfault.

More details are captured here, 

Request your attention on this for 3.10.
