Subject Re: A fix for those who suffer from GC storm by tombstones

DuyHi and Rob, Thanks for your feedbacks.

Yeah, that's exactly the point I found. Some may want to run read repair even on tombstones
as before, but others not like Rob and us.

Personally, I take read repaid as a nice to have feature, especially for tombstones, where
a regular repair is anyway enforced.

So with this fix, I expect that a user can choose a better, manageable risk as needed. The
good news is, the improvement for performance is significant!

entirely on AES repair, because the 8303 approach makes read repair not actually repair in
some cases...
