Sorry for the delay. I would like to propose below feature for 3.13
gfapi: APIs needed to register cbk functions for upcalls
Summary: Instead of polling continuously for upcalls, we need APIs for
the applications to be able to register upcall events and the
corresponding callback functions to be invoked.
github issue: #315 
Patch (under review): https://review.gluster.org/#/c/18349/
Please let me know if this can be targeted for 3.13 release.
