> What I am seeing here is:
> 1) create a file and write with 2 DNS
> 2) Close the file.
> 3) Kill one DN
> 4) Let replication start.
>   Info:
>     {code}
>  // choose replication targets: NOT HOLDING THE GLOBAL LOCK
>       // It is costly to extract the filename for which chooseTargets is called,
>       // so for now we pass in the block collection itself.
>       rw.targets = blockplacement.chooseTarget(rw.bc,
>           rw.additionalReplRequired, rw.srcNode, rw.liveReplicaNodes,
>           excludedNodes, rw.block.getNumBytes());{code}
> Here we are choosing target outside the global lock. Inside we will try to get the src
path from blockCollection(nothing but INodeFile here).
> see the code for FSDirectory#getFullPathName
>  Here it is incrementing the depth until it has parent. and Later it will iterate and
access parent again in next loop.
> 5) before going to secnd loop in FSDirectory#getFullPathName, if file is deleted by client
then that parent would have been set as null. So, here accessing the parent can cause NPE
because it is not under lock.
