Merged upstream master.
Creates the metadata file is shared by all hosts participating in the engine
high availability cluster. Each host is assigned a 4KiB chunk according
to its host id, with a corresponding offset of host_id*4KiB. The
initial 4KiB of the file are reserved for shared state such as a global
engine ha maintenance bit.
