Make swift's expirer compatible with gluster-swift
Swift's object expirer in kilo series was incompatible with gluster-swift. This change does the following: * Optimizes crawl in account and container server for listing requests for containers and tracker objects in gsexpiring volume. * Enables container server to delete tracker objects from gsexpiring volume. Swift's expirer sends request directly to container server to remove tracker object entry. * delete_tracker_object() is now a common utility function that is invoked from container server and gluster-swift's object expirer. * Run functional test to be run against both swift's object expirer and gluster-swift's object expirer Change-Id: Ib5b7f7f08fe7dda574f6dd80be2f38bdfaee32bc Signed-off-by: Prashanth Pai <> Reviewed-on: Reviewed-by: Thiago da Silva <> Tested-by: Thiago da Silva <>
