features/bit-rot: filesystem scrubber
Scrubber performs signature verification for objects that were signed by signer. This is done by recalculating the signature (using the hash algorithm the object was signed with) and verifying it aginst the objects persisted signature. Since the object could be undergoing IO opretaion at the time of hash calculation, the signature may not match objects persisted signature. Bitrot stub provides additional information about the stalesness of an objects signature (determinted by it's versioning mechanism). This additional bit of information is used by scrubber to determine the staleness of the signature, and in such cases the object is skipped verification (although signature staleness is performed twice: once before initiation of hash calculation and another after it (an object could be modified after staleness checks). The implmentation is a part of the bitrot xlator (signer) which acts as a signer or scrubber based on a translator option. As of now the scrub process is ever running (but has some form of weak throttling mechanism during filesystem scan). Going forward, there needs to be some form of scrub scheduling and IO throttling (during hash calculation) tunables (via CLI).
