The volume stop, in brick-mux mode reveals a race with my patch [1]
Although this behavior is 100% reproducible with my patch, this, by no
means, implies that my patch is buggy.

In brick-mux mode, during volume stop, when glusterd sends a brick-detach
message to the brick process for the last brick, the brick process responds
back to glusterd with an acknowledgment and then kills itself with a
SIGTERM signal. All this sounds fine. However, somehow, the response
doesn't reach glusterd and instead a socket disconnect notification reaches
glusterd before the response. This causes glusterd to presume that
something has gone wrong during volume stop and glusterd then fails the
volume stop operation causing the test to fail.

This race is reproducible by running the test
tests/basic/distribute/rebal-all-nodes-migrate.t in brick-mux mode for my
patch [1]
