> In order to support read consistency, DFSClient needs the file length at the file opening
time.  In the current implmentation, DFSClient obtains the file length at the file opening
time but the length is inaccurate if the file is being written.
> For more details, see Section 4 in the [append design doc|https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/attachment/12415768/appendDesign2.pdf].
