MDS: damage reporting by ino number is useless
We had two damaged directories on the long-running cluster, but examining the directories in question (other than through raw RADOS) is pretty difficult.
When we generate a damage report a little more info is sent to clog, but we can't find any entries and think it was so long ago the files have been logrotated into nothingness.
In a reasonably healthy cluster one could also look at the raw RADOS objects, but assuming I've done the name translation correctly, we actually have lost these objects!

The log message reporting the path is still there:
/var/log/ceph/ceph.log.3.gz:2017-01-10 04:29:24.415773 mds.0 172.21.5.114:6816/1992312860 363 : cluster [ERR] dir 100047040d6 object missing on disk; some files may be lost (/teuthology-archive/teuthology-2014-10-18_19:33:01-upgrade:dumpling-firefly-x:stress-split-giant-distro-basic-multi)
Not that it wouldn't still be reasonable to add an informational field to the damage entries, shall we just make it a path string or can we think of other advisory metadata that might be useful?
