Description of problem:
When Changelogs processed in Batch, Geo-rep logs all the GFIDs from that batch as SKIPPED even when a few GFIDs from the batch failed to sync.
Steps to Reproduce: (Reproduced by introducing GFID conflict)
1. Create a file in Slave mount(say f1)
2. Create files in Master mount and add data to it
echo "Hello" > f1; echo "Hello" > f2; echo "Hello" > f3;
3. All the files Create and Data will be recorded in single changelog. Rsync/Tar skips f1 but syncs f2 and f3. But it logs GFIDs of f1, f2 and f3 as SKIPPED.
Logs all the GFIDs as failure.
Only failures should be reported in log.

geo-rep: Handling Rsync/Tar errors efficiently
Geo-rep processes Changelogs in Batch, if one file in batch
fails with rsync error that Changelog file is reprocessed multiple times.
After MAX_RETRY, it logs all the GFIDs from that batch as Skipped.
This patch addresses following issues,
1. When Rsync/Tar fails do not parse Changelog again for retry
2. When Rsync/Tar fails do not replay Entry operations, only retry
rsync/tar for those GFIDs
3. Log Error in Rsync/Tar only in the last Retry
4. Do not log Skipped GFIDs since Rsync/Tar errors are logged for
only failed files.
5. Changed Entry failures as Error instead of Warning
