> When a job is killed, if there are tasks which haven't been launched yet (just scheduled
on a tasktracker) it leads to a situation where the non-launched task hangs around for a long
time on the tasktrackers taking up valuable 'slots' preventing the scheduling of _legitimate_
tasks on them.
> This is due to a race-condition:
> a) Job is killed:
>     JobInProgress.kill
>     -> JobInProgress.garbageCollect
>     -> JobInProgress.finalizeJob
>     -> JobTracker.removeJobTasks
>     -> JobTracker.removeTaskEntry - this removes the taskid -> TIP entry in JobTracker.taskIdToTIPMap
> b) ExpireLaunchingTasks thread detects the task has timedout, however since the taskid
-> TIP map is missing it cannot 'fail' the task - thus leaving it orphaned on the tasktracker.
> One possible solution is to broadcast a KillJobAction to all trackers in the cluster
(or only those trackers which ever ran a task of this Job) ensuring the right cleanup... clearly
this is a hairy situation.
> Thoughts?
