kinder gentler compaction

                 Key: CASSANDRA-1181
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis
            Assignee: Brandon Williams
             Fix For: 0.7

I suggested this in a ML thread but it seems that nobody actually tried it.  I think it's
worth following up on:

You could try setting the compaction thread to a lower priority.  You could add a thread priority
to NamedThreadPool, and pass that up from CompactionExecutor constructor.  According to
you have to run as root and add a JVM option to get this to work.

In particular, Brandon saw read latencies spike to 100ms during [anti]compaction
on a 2 core machine.  I'd like to see if this can mitigate that.
