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

Colin, let me know if you are free to work on branch-1 version of this patch. If you are busy,
I can see if someone else can pick it up.

> It is good to avoid running out of space in the middle of writing a batch of edits, because
when it happens, we often get partial edits at the end of the log.
> Edit log preallocation can solve this problem (see HADOOP-2330 for a full description
of edit log preallocation).
> The current pre-allocation code was introduced for performance reasons, not for preventing
partial edits.  As a consequence, we sometimes do a write without using pre-allocation.  We
should change the pre-allocation code so that it always preallocates at least enough space
before writing out the edits.
