When the same file has mis-match in gfid self-heal looksup the parent 
directory and see which one is the source (based on the entry xattrs of 
the directory), then it will retain the file in that directory removes 
the other file and does the self-heal of the file.
If there is no clear source in the parent directory it can't self-heal.
