dht: update attr information in refresh layout to avoid
stale timestamp Consider the scenario where an mkdir has just created the directory but has not healed it yet. A parallel lookup on this entry will find anomalies and trigger a selfheal which will sample the ctime of the directory after the mkdir phase. Meanwhile the mkdir has completed setting the layout and updated the ctime. The selfheal then sees the layout to be healed and returns with the ctime it got after the mkdir phase which has now become stale. However if the lookup happens to unwind before the mkdir then the inode associated with lookup will get linked in the inode table which has the stale ctime. To avoid this selfheal must do an iatt_merge in refresh layout to get the latest timestamp irrespective of whether it needs to heal the layout or not.
