cluster/stripe: implement the coalesce stripe file format
The coalesce file format for cluster/stripe condenses the striped files to a contiguous layout. The elimination of holes in striped files eliminates space wasted via local filesystem preallocation heuristics and significantly improves read performance. Coalesce mode is implemented with a new 'coalesce' xlator option, which is user-configurable and disabled by default. The format of newly created files is marked with a new 'stripe-coalesce' xattr. Cluster/stripe handles/preserves the format of files regardless of the current mode of operation (i.e., a volume can simultaneously consist of coalesced and non-coalesced files). Files without the stripe-coalesce attribute are assumed to have the traditional format to provide backward compatibility. extras/stripe-merge: support traditional and coalesce stripe formats Update the stripe-merge recovery tool to handle the traditional and coalesced file formats. The format of the file is detected automatically (and verified) via the stripe-coalesce attributes.
