dht,posix: support for case discovery
This is support for discovering a filename in a given directory which has a case insensitive match of a given name. It is implemented as a virtual extended attribute on the directory where the required filename is specified in the key. E.g: sh# getfattr -e "text" -n user.glusterfs.get_real_filename:FiLe-B /mnt/samba/patchy getfattr: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names # file: mnt/samba/patchy user.glusterfs.get_real_filename:FiLe-B="file-b" In reality, there can be multiple "answers" as the backend filesystem is case sensitive and there can be multiple files which can strcasecamp() successfully. In this case we pick the first matched file from the first responding server. If a matching file does not exist, we return ENOENT (and NOT ENODATA). This way the caller can differentiate between "unsupported" glusterfs API and file not existing. This API is used by Samba VFS to perform efficient discovery of the real filename without doing a full scan at the Samba level.
