io-threads: Prioritize fops with NO_ROOT_SQUASH pid
There was 30% regression observed in mkdir path with commit b139bc58eb504adf5ef81658896c9283ae21f390. On analysis it is found that io-threads xlator deprioritzes fops with all -ve pid. Some context in to the no-root-squash pid requirement: DHT xlator does some of the internal fops with root privileges. This is needed so that operations like layout healing should not be abandoned because a non root user is operating. If root-squash option is enabled the layout set operation looses its root privilege as server xlator converts the uid and pid to random numbers. Hence, the above mentioned commit converted pid to GF_CLIENT_PID_NO_ROOT_SQUASH to continue fops as root. Combining the above I am proposing not to deprioritize fops with no-root-squash pid.
