    gfapi: use const qualifier for glfs_*timens()
    glfs_*timens() functions have the last argument
    of struct timespec type that is supposed to be
    const. Now using glfs_*timens() in fops, implemented
    on top of FUSE library, leads to compiler-time warning
    about discarding const qualifier.
    Introducing const qualifier does not break ABI,
    so let's just fix it.

This bug is getting closed because a release has been made available that should address the reported issue. In case the problem is still not fixed with glusterfs-3.8.3, please open a new bug report.

glusterfs-3.8.3 has been announced on the Gluster mailinglists [1], packages for several distributions should become available in the near future. Keep an eye on the Gluster Users mailinglist [2] and the update infrastructure for your distribution.
