[Gluster-devel] brick multiplexing regression is broken

The test which is failing is also introduced with the same patch. It is supposed to validate the functionality introduced. From the history of earlier patchsets of same patch, same test has failed earlier too, albeit inconsistently (though the merged version has passed centos regressions). So, it looks like the patch is not working as intended during some race conditions. Frequent earlier failures should've served as an alert, but I failed to notice. Sorry about that.

>               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.
