---------------------------------------

+1 for the patch.

Minor: I was wondering if we should add more comments on why this being done in the code.

> In a big cluster, when namenode starts up,  it takes a long time for namenode to process
block reports from all datanodes. Because heartbeats processing get delayed, some datanodes
are erroneously marked as dead, then later on they have to register again, thus wasting time.
> It would speed up starting time if the checking of dead nodes is disabled when namenode
in safemode.
