Review request for hadoop-hdfs, Dhruba Borthakur and Hairong Kuang.


This patch introduces explicit ACKs sent form datanodes to the namenode in order to minimize
the difference between NN blocks info and DN state.
This will allow for sending the full block reports less frequently, which in turn will minimize
the overhead of processing them, and blocking the namenode for extended time.

This addresses bug HDFS-395.

> I have a cluster that has 1800 datanodes. Each datanode has around 50000 blocks and sends
a block report to the namenode once every hour. This means that the namenode processes a block
report once every 2 seconds. Each block report contains all blocks that the datanode currently
hosts. This makes the namenode compare a huge number of blocks that practically remains the
same between two consecutive reports. This wastes CPU on the namenode.
> The problem becomes worse when the number of datanodes increases.
> One proposal is to make succeeding block reports (after a successful send of a full block
report) be incremental. This will make the namenode process only those blocks that were added/deleted
in the last period.
