metadisp: new translator for data and metadata separation
Summary: feature/metadisp is an xlator for performing "metadata dispersal" across multiple children. it does this by flattening the complex POSIX paths into /$GFID style paths, then forwarding the metadata operations to its first child and forwarding the data operations to its second child. The purpose of this xlator is to allow separation of data and metadata, in cases where metadata might be stored in another format (embedded kv?), on another disk (ssd), on another host (dht2).
