Do we need this behind an option, if existing behavior causes split
brains? Or is the option being added for workloads that do not have
multiple clients or clients writing to non-overlapping regions (and thus
need not suffer a penalty in performance maybe? But they should not
anyway as a single client and AFR eager locks should ensure this is done
only once for the lifetime of the file being accesses, right?)

Basically I would like to keep options out it possible in backports, as
that changes the gluster op-version and involves other upgrade steps to
be sure users can use this option etc. Which means more reading and
execution of upgrade steps for our users. Hence the concern!

This should be fine.
