Description Nithya Balachandran 2015-12-01 00:25:59 EST
Description of problem:
A newly created file on a tiered volume with distributed-disperse cold tier and dist-rep hot tier has EC xattrs set on it even though it exists on a hot tier.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a distributed-disperse (2x(4+2)) volume and attach a dist-rep hot tier to it
2. Start the volume and FUSE mount it.
3. Create a file on the mount point. Internally, tier first creates a linkto file on the cold tier and then creates the actual data file on the hot tier.
4. Check the xattrs set on the file on the hot tier bricks

Actual results:
The file has EC xattrs set on it

Expected results:
No EC xattrs should be present on files in non-EC subvols

    cluster/ec: Create copy of dict for setting internal xattrs
    Ec takes a ref of the request xdata and sets trusted.ec.version/algo etc xattrs
    as part of it. But this request xdata could be using same dictionary to do the
    operation on multiple subvolumes, due to which other subvolumes will have
    internal xattrs of ec in it and will be created on subvols where they are not
    supposed to appear.
    Take a copy of the request xdata/dict to prevent this from happening.
    Most of the debugging work and test script is contributed by Nitya.
