Description

Hi,

I tried to connect to a small Ceph setup on my desktop without cephx and
that failed:

root@stack01:~# ceph -m wido-desktop.widodh.nl:6789 -s
global_init: unable to open config file.
root@stack01:~#

I however worked with:

root@stack01:~# ceph -m wido-desktop.widodh.nl:6789 -c /dev/null -s

I quick look at global_init.cc showed me why this happened, it simply
looks for a configuration file to open and when it can't it fails.

But if a monitor address is set, a config file shouldn't be mandatory.

It could be accomplished rather simple by setting the flag
CINIT_FLAG_NO_DEFAULT_CONFIG_FILE if a mon_host has been set, but to do
that conf->parse_argv(args); should move a few lines up.

Comments? Thoughts?

I've got a stupid hack that makes this work, but I'm going to see if I can generalize our common config stuff so this can be dealt with generically.

Okay, just made it not care about config files in wip-2352.
