---------------------------------------

I would like to agree with Todd too. Uma: do you have a use-case why you definitely need this
in 0.20?

> When a file is deleted, the namenode sends out block deletions messages to the appropriate
datanodes. However, the namenode does not delete these blocks from the blocksmap. Instead,
the processing of the next block report from the datanode causes these blocks to get removed
from the blocksmap.
> If we desire to make block report processing less frequent, this issue needs to be addressed.
Also, this introduces indeterministic behaviout to a a few unit tests. Another factor to consider
is to ensure that duplicate block detection is not compromised.
