> Currently, the NN logs its edits to each of its edits directories in sequence. This can
produce the following bad sequence:
> - NN accumulates 100 edits (tx 1-100) in the buffer. Writes and syncs to local drive,
then crashes
> - Failover occurs. SBN takes over at txid=1, since txid 1 never got writen.
> - First NN restarts. It reads up to txid 100 from its local directories. It is now "ahead"
of the active NN with inconsistent state.
> The solution is to write to the shared edits dir, and sync that, before writing to any
local drives.
