Avoid unnecessary iprop full resyncs after resets
When resetting the ulog header or initializing it from a dump file
kdb_last_t value, instead of setting kdb_num to 0, create a dummy
entry for the last_sno value so that we can remember its timestamp.
With this change, a slave no longer needs to perform two full resyncs
after an upstream header initialization. Dummy entries are never
transmitted to downstream slaves because the iprop protocol never
transmits the kdb_first_sno update; if one is somehow transmitted, the
slave will ignore it because it doesn't have the kdb_commit flag set.
reset_header() is renamed to reset_ulog(), takes a kdb_log_context
parameter, and is responsible for syncing the header. sync_update()
now returns void and aborts if msync() fails, just like sync_header().
A new helper set_dummy() writes a dummy entry and sets the ulog to
point to it.
Adjust kproplog to recognize and display dummy entries. Adjust
t_ulog.c and t_iprop.py for the new behavior. In t_iprop.py, remove a
kpropd -t test which became redundant with the previous test.
