The errror numbers that you see in the replies array in 
afr_final_errno() are set in afr_inode_refresh_subvol_cbk().

During inode refresh (which is essentially a lookup), AFR sends the the 
lookup request on all its connected children and the replies from each 
one of them are captured in afr_inode_refresh_subvol_cbk(). So adding a 
log here can identify if we got EIO from any of its children. See 
attached patch for an example.

After we hear from all children, afr_inode_refresh_subvol_cbk() then 
But you already know this flow now.
