tier/ctr: Providing option to record or ignore metadata heat
Currently we heat up a file for both data and metadata write. Here we provide a ctr xlator option called "ctr-record-metadata-heat" were the admin can decide on recording metadata heat i.e heatup a file on metadata writes or not. Metadata data operation are a. setattr: explicit changing of atime/mtime using utimes, changing of posix permissions of the file b. rename: Renaming a file, c. unlink, link: adding or deleting hardlinks d. xattrs: setting or removal of xattrs. NOTE: atime, mtime and ctime change through writev, readv, truncate, mknod and create will not be considered here as these fops are data and primary metadata fops. Defaultly "ctr-record-metadata-heat" is off. Admin can switch it on using gluster volume set command.
