[Gluster-devel] Tests failing on Centos 7

As we are testing on Cent7 and for analyzing failures need a cent7 
instance to debug, here is a way to do this using a cent7 container on 
your machine [1].

All tests do not pass or work, things that hang are noted.

Post first setup, this becomes easier ;)

There is still some work to ensure that all tests pass (maybe more 
docker CLI options etc.) and it would help if learnings are passed 
around (in the lists preferably).

Also, thanks to Talur, for some pointers from his previous tests around
