[Gluster-devel] Brick-Mux tests failing for over 11+ weeks

After the fix provided by Atin here [1] for the issue reported below, we
ran 7-8 runs of brick mux regressions against this fix, and we have had
1/3 runs successful (even those have some tests retried). The run links
are in the review at [1].

The failures are as below, sorted in descending order of frequency.
Requesting respective component owners/peers to take a stab at root
causing these, as the current pass rate is not sufficient to qualify the
release (or master) as stable.

1) ./tests/bitrot/br-state-check.t (bitrot folks please take a look,
this has the maximum instances of failures, including a core in the run [2])

2) ./tests/bugs/replicate/bug-1363721.t (Replicate component owners
please note, there are some failures in GFID comparison that seems
outside of mux cases as well)

3) ./tests/bugs/distribute/bug-1543279.t (Distribute)

./tests/bugs/index/bug-1559004-EMLINK-handling.t (I think we need to up
the SCRIPT timeout on this, if someone can confirm looking at the runs
and failures, it would help determining the same)

------ We can possibly wait to analyze things below this line as the
instance count is 2 or less ------

4)  ./tests/bugs/glusterd/add-brick-and-validate-replicated-volume-options.t


5)  ./tests/bugs/distribute/bug-1161311.t
