Disable the dynamic snitch... via the hidden but still valid [1]
configuration directive "dynamic_snitch" in cassandra.yaml.

"dynamic_snitch: false"

Given the various other bad edge cases with the Dynamic Snitch (sending
requests to the "wrong" DC on reset, etc.) this might be worth considering
in general... especially with the speculative execution stuff in 2.0...

I do note that has a
patch in 2.0.5, yay...
