storage/posix: Prefer gfid links for inode-handle
Problem: File path could change by other entry operations in-flight so if renames are in progress at the time of other operations like open, it may lead to failures. We observed that this issue can also happen while renames and readdirps/lookups are in progress because dentry-table is going stale sometimes. Fix: Prefer gfid-handles over paths for files. For directory handles prefering gfid-handles hits performance issues because it needs to resolve paths traversing up the symlinks. Tests which test if files are opened should check on gfid path after this change. So changed couple of tests to reflect the same. Note: This patch doesn't fix the issue for directories. I think a complete fix is to come up with an entry operation serialization xlator. Until then lets live with this.
