> phi estimates are calculated for newly discovered nodes from an un-filled (new, uninitialized)
deque.
> The inter-arrival time (elapsed time between gossip heartbeats) is stored in the o.a.c.gms.ArrivalWindow.arrivalIntervale
deque for each received heartbeat, up to the maximum window size of 1000 samples.
> In the o.a.c.gms.FailureDetector.interpret() method, phi is calculated for the node which
uses a statistical measure called variance.  Like mean, variance on a population (a set of
numbers or measurements) is not statistically relevant unless the population set size is 30
or greater. 
> When a new node is discovered, the calculated variance is higher than normal, and causes
phi to be higher than normal, resulting in a false positive failure detection.
