posix: handle some internal behavior in posix_mknod()
assume a case of link() systemcall, which is handled in distribute by creating a 'linkfile' in hashed subvolume, if the 'oldloc' is present in different subvolume. we have same 'gfid' for the linkfile as that of file for consistency. Now, a file with multiple hardlinks, we may end up with 'hardlinked' linkfiles. dht create linkfile using 'mknod()' fop, and as now posix_mknod() is not equipped to handle this situation. this patch fixes the situation by looking at the 'internal' key set in the dictionary to differentiate the call which originates from inside with regular system calls.
