geo-rep: Fix syncing of symlink
Problem: If symlink is created on master pointing to current directory (e.g symlink -> ".") with non root uid or gid, geo-rep worker crashes with ENOTSUP. Cause: Geo-rep creates the symlink on slave and fixes the uid and gid using chown cmd. os.chown dereferences the symlink which is pointing to ".gfid" which is not supported. Note that geo-rep operates on aux-gfid-mount (e.g. "/mnt/.gfid/<gfid-of-symlink-file>"). Solution: The uid or gid change is acutally on symlink file. So use os.lchown, i.e, don't deference.
