HA: re-enable NO_ACK optimization for block deletion

                 Key: HDFS-2973
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2973
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: ha, name-node
    Affects Versions: HA branch (HDFS-1623)
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
            Assignee: Todd Lipcon

Currently in trunk, when a file is removed, the deletion request is sent to the DNs with a
special NO_ACK flag to indicate that they don't need to ACK the deletion. The NN itself takes
care of removing the blocks from the block map, so the deletion report would be redundant.
In the HA branch, we disabled this to fix a failure in TestSafeMode -- when the active NN
issues a block deletion, and the standby hasn't read the edits yet, this test case expects
that it would see the block deletions.
I don't see any actual compelling reasons for this. I think we can restore the optimization
and modify the test to pass.
