> If a DFSClient does create with overwrite multiple times on the same file, we can get
into bad states. The exact failure mode depends on the state of the file, but at the least
one DFSOutputStream will "win" over the others, leading to data loss in the sense that data
written to the other DFSOutputStreams will be lost. While this is perhaps okay because of
overwrite semantics, we've also seen other cases where the DFSClient loops indefinitely on
close and blocks get marked as corrupt. This is not okay.
> One fix for this is adding some locking to DFSClient which prevents a user from opening
multiple concurrent output streams to the same path.
