Is no longer possible to disable 'nfs.addr-namelookup' in
GlusterFS 3.2.2

If you don't wish do, or cannot use DNS name resolution with
GlusterFS for NFS volumes, the volume's 'nfs.addr-
namelookup' option needs to be changed from the default of
'on', to 'off'. This worked OK in GlusterFS 3.2.1, but it no
longer works in 3.2.2.

The problem looks to be a side effect of this fix, which if
backed out, allows namelookup to be disabled:

        mgmt/glusterd: Set the generic options in the graph
        before merging it with the parent graph while
        building nfs-server volfile.

        volume is reflected in all the volumes in the nfs-

        URL: http://bugs.gluster.com/cgi-bin/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=3003

Although the 'gluster volume info' shows the 'namelookup'
option set to "off", the corresponding setting 'rpc-auth.addr.namelookup'
does not appear in the 'nfs.log' in 3.2.2 like it did in 3.2.1.

I have not tried any other volume options to see if any
others are similarly impacted.
