glusterfs_ctx_t: un-globalize the filesystem context
So far there has been a global glusterfs_ctx_t object which represents the running instance of the filesystem (client or server). It contains the various graphs, connection to the management daemon over which new graphs are obtained, calls stacks issued on this filesystem, and a bunch of such things. With the introduction of libgfapi, it is no more true that there will be only one filesystem context in a process. Applications can be written to use libgfapi and obtain serveral instances of different filesystems/volumes in the same process. This involves messy untangling of assumptions inside libglusterfs that there would only be one global glusterfs_ctx_t and offload that assumption to glusterfsd/ and cli/ (where it is true).
