Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7437) Drop Keyspace and ColumnFamily can raise assertions inside of forceRecycleAll still

T Jake Luciani commented on CASSANDRA-7437:

The only part I'm not clear on is what happens if this is being actively written to / read

I've suppressed the assertion in favour of an error log message, as the assertion would break
correct program flow for the drop and potentially result in undefined behaviour
> -(in actuality there is the slightest possibility still of a race condition on read of
a secondary index that causes a repair driven write, but this is a really tiny race window,
as I force wait for all reads after unlinking the CF, so it would have to be a read that grabbed
the CFS reference before it was dropped, but hadn't quite started its read op yet).- In fact
this is also safe, as these modifications all grab a write op from the Keyspace, which has
to happen before they get the CFS, and also because we drop the data before waiting for reads
to finish on the CFS.
