for HDFS deciding when to mark a node as dead, rather than just X retries * Y seconds.

>          Components: master

> On a cluster with a flaky network, the master may be unable to contact a tserver for
some moderate amount of time and then direct it to terminate, even though the tserver is still
up. (See {{gatherTableInformation()}} and {{StatusThread}}. It does not appear possible to
configure the master to be more forgiving in these checks. Relevant constants:
> * {{DEFAULT_WAIT_FOR_WATCHER}} - interval between server checks
> * {{MAX_BAD_STATUS_COUNT}} - the maximum number of failed attempts allowed before killing
the tserver
> Making one or both of those configurable, or some other pertinent parameter configurable,
would allow cluster admins to cope with mild network maladies.
