> The BlockPlacementPolicy (BPP) is extensible and already multiple instances in system:
BlockPlacementPolicyDefault, BlockPlacementPolicyWithNodeGroup, BlockPlacementPolicyRAID,
etc. When cluster is switched from one BPP to another BPP, HDFS will not check if block locations
conform the new BPP. Now, you can manually fsck on specific directory to identify replica
placement policy is violated for some blocks but have no way to fix it so far. We should provide
way to fix it. Also, in the long term, we should allow multiple BPPs co-existing on the same
HDFS cluster for different purpose of data, i.e. we should allow some old, infrequently accessed
data/directory to under RAID policy so that can save space.
