> Currently, the NameNode validates checkpoint uploads by using timestamps associated with
checkpoints and edit logs. However, now that we have transaction IDs that uniquely identify
each point in time in the history of a namespace, it is more robust to simply use transaction
IDs to identify images and edits.
> This JIRA is to remove the use of editsTime and checkpointTime and replace it with:
> * {{lastCheckpointTxId}} - the highest transaction ID reflected in the most recently
saved fsimage file
> * {{lastLogRollTxId}} - the highest transaction ID in {{edits}} when {{rollFsImage}}
was called by the checkpointing node.
