]

Todd Lipcon resolved HDFS-1994.
-------------------------------

      Resolution: Fixed
    Hadoop Flags: [Reviewed]

Fixed the nits and committed to branch.

Unfortunately Mockito doesn't provide that Answer implementation, but I based that implementation
on a suggestion I found on the Mockito bugtracker.

> HDFS-1984 added the ability to run two secondary namenodes at the same time. However,
there were two races I found when stress testing this (by running two NNs each checkpointing
in a tight loop with no sleep):
> 1) the writing of the seen_txid file was not atomic, so it was at some points reading
an empty file
> 2) it was possible for two checkpointers to try to take a checkpoint at the same transaction
ID, which would cause the two image downloads to collide and fail
