> Most critical data structures in the NameNode (NN) are protected by a syncronized methods
in the FSNamesystem class. This essentially makes critical code paths in the NN single-threaded.
However, a large percentage of the NN calls are listStatus, getBlockLocations, etc which do
not change internal data structures at all, these are read-only calls. If we change the FSNamesystem
lock to a read/write lock, many of the above operations can occur in parallel, thus improving
the scalability of the NN.
