@Hairong I believe Todd is referring to the this patch being run in production here at SU
for last 3 months as well as whatever deploys there are atop CDHs that have this patch applied..
not 0.22.

> In the current trunk, the HDFS client methods writeChunk() and hflush./sync are syncronized.
This means that if a hflush/sync is in progress, an applicationn cannot write data to the
HDFS client buffer. This reduces the write throughput of the transaction log in HBase. 
> The hflush/sync should allow new writes to happen to the HDFS client even when a hflush/sync
is in progress. It can record the seqno of the message for which it should receice the ack,
indicate to the DataStream thread to star flushing those messages, exit the synchronized section
 and just wai for that ack to arrive.
