Committed to trunk. Matt, can you provide a patch for 0.22?

> I discovered this in the course of trying to implement a fix for HDFS-1505.
> Per the comment for {{FSImage.saveNamespace(...)}}, the algorithm for save namespace
proceeds in the following order:
> # rename current to lastcheckpoint.tmp for all of them,
> # save image and recreate edits for all of them,
> # rename lastcheckpoint.tmp to previous.checkpoint.
> The problem is that step 3 occurs regardless of whether or not an error occurs for all
storage directories in step 2. Upon restart, the NN will see non-existent or corrupt {{current}}
directories, and no {{lastcheckpoint.tmp}} directories, and so will conclude that the storage
directories are not formatted.
> This issue appears to be present on both 0.22 and 0.23. This should arguably be a 0.22/0.23
blocker.
