> Per one of the TODOs in Journal.java, there is currently a lack of atomicity in the {{acceptRecovery()}}
code path. In particular, we have the following actions executed non-atomically:
> - Download a new edits_inprogress_N from some other node
> - Persist the paxos recovery file to disk.
> If the JN crashes between these two steps, then we may be left in the state whereby the
edits_inprogress file has different data than the Paxos data left over on the disk from a
previous recovery attempt. This causes the next {{prepareRecovery()}} to fail with an AssertionError.
> I discovered this by randomly injecting a fault between the two steps, and then running
the randomized fault test on a cluster. This resulted in some AssertionErrors in the test
logs.
