Switch NameNode to use non-fair locks

                 Key: HDFS-1796
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1796
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Hairong Kuang

According to JavaDoc, a non-fair lock will normally have higher throughput than a fair lock.
Our experiment also shows an improved performance when using a non-fair lock. We should switch
namenode to use non-fair locks.
