Hi Hu Bert,

Thanks for these logs, and report. 'Transport end point not connected' on a
mount comes for 2 reasons.

1. When the brick (in case of replica all the bricks) having the file is
not reachable, or are down. This gets to normal state when the bricks are
2. When the client process crashes/asserts. In this case, /dev/fuse
wouldn't be connected to a process, but mount will still have a reference.
This needs 'umount' and mount again to work.

We will see what is this issue and get back.
