> ActiveStandbyElector can store null at ActiveBreadCrumb in the below race condition.
At further all failovers will fail resulting NPE.
> 1. ZKFC restarted.
> 2. due to machine busy, first zk connection is expired even before the health monitoring
returned the status.
> 3. On re-establishment transitionToActive will be called, at this time appData will be
null,
> 4. So now ActiveBreadCrumb will have null.
> 5. After this any failovers will fail throwing 
> {noformat}java.lang.NullPointerException
