+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1249499 +++
Description of problem:
A gluster volume can have ping-timeout values different from the default 42 secs. This can be done by setting network.ping-timeout option on the volume.
# gluster volume set <VOLNAME> network.ping-timeout <preferred-value>
Currently, volume-set doesn't update the ping-timeout on running mounts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount a gluster volume with default ping-timeout value.
2. Change the ping-timeout to a different value with the volume-set command mentioned above.
3. Simulate a network disconnection using iptables(8) or attach gdb to one of the brick processes.
The ping-timeout isn't updated on running mount processes.
The ping-timeout should take effect on running mount processes.
