Description Ravishankar N 2015-09-01 06:23:52 EDT
Description of problem:

In AFR transaction, in the pre-op, the dirty xattr is set. In the post-op, if the transaction fails on one of the bricks, then on the healthy brick, the dirty xattr is unset and then the pending xattr (for the brick that went down) is set in that order. If the brick crashes after unsetting the dirty xattr, we have lost information about a pending heal. Hence we need to reverse the order, i.e. set pending xattr first followed by unsetting the dirty.
