Datanode can have more than one copy of same block when a failed disk is coming back in datanode
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-1940
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1940
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: data-node
    Affects Versions: 0.20.204.0
            Reporter: Rajit


There is a situation where one datanode can have more than one copy of same block due to a
disk fails and comes back after sometime in a datanode. And these duplicate blocks are not
getting deleted even after datanode and namenode restart.

This situation can only happen in a corner case , when due to disk failure, the data block
is replicated to other disk of the same datanode.


To simulate this scenario I copied a datablock and the associated .meta file from one disk
to another disk of same datanode, so the datanode is having 2 copy of same replica. Now I
restarted datanode and namenode. Still the extra data block and meta file is not deleted from
the datanode
