The following commit has broken the brick multiplexing regression job.
tests/bugs/bug-1371806_1.t has failed couple of times.  One of the latest
regression job report is at

    cluster/dht : User xattrs are not healed after brick stop/start

    Problem: In a distributed volume custom extended attribute value for a
             does not display correct value after stop/start or added newly
             If any extended(acl) attribute value is set for a directory
after stop/added
             the brick the attribute(user|acl|quota) value is not updated
on brick
             after start the brick.

    Solution: First store hashed subvol or subvol(has internal xattr) on
inode ctx and
              consider it as a MDS subvol.At the time of update custom xattr
              (user,quota,acl, selinux) on directory first check the mds
              inode ctx, if mds is not present on inode ctx then throw
EINVAL error
              to application otherwise set xattr on MDS subvol with
internal xattr
              value of -1 and then try to update the attribute on other non
              volumes also.If mds subvol is down in that case throw an
              error "Transport endpoint is not connected". In
              dht_revalidate_cbk|dht_discover_complete call
              to heal custom extended attribute.
              In case of gnfs server if hashed subvol has not found based on
              loc then wind a call on all subvol to update xattr.

    Fix:    1) Save MDS subvol on inode ctx
            2) Check if mds subvol is present on inode ctx
            3) If mds subvol is down then call unwind with error ENOTCONN
and if it is up
               then set new xattr "GF_DHT_XATTR_MDS" to -1 and wind a call
on other
            4) If setxattr fop is successful on non-mds subvol then
increment the value of
               internal xattr to +1
            5) At the time of directory_lookup check the value of new xattr
            6) If value is not 0 in dht_lookup_dir_cbk(other cbk) functions
then call heal
               function to heal user xattr
            7) syncop_setxattr on hashed_subvol to reset the value of xattr
to 0
               if heal is successful on all subvol.

    Test : To reproduce the issue followed below steps
           1) Create a distributed volume and create mount point
           2) Create some directory from mount point mkdir tmp{1..5}
           3) Kill any one brick from the volume
           4) Set extended attribute from mount point on directory
              setfattr -n user.foo -v "abc" ./tmp{1..5}
              It will throw error " Transport End point is not connected "
              for those hashed subvol is down
           5) Start volume with force option to start brick process
           6) Execute getfattr command on mount point for directory
           7) Check extended attribute on brick
              getfattr -n user.foo <volume-location>/tmp{1..5}
              It shows correct value for directories for those
              xattr fop were executed successfully.

    Note: The patch will resolve xattr healing problem only for fuse mount
          not for nfs mount.
