> When a primary datanode tries to recover a block.  It calls getBlockMetaDataInfo(..)
to obtains information like block length from each datanode.  Then, it calls updateBlock(..).
> The block length returned in getBlockMetaDataInfo(..) may be obtained from a unclosed
local block file F.   However, in updateBlock(..), it first closes F (if F is open) and then
gets the length.  These two lengths may be different.  In such case, updateBlock(..) throws
an exception.
