> It used to be very unlikely that the directory scanner encountered two replicas of the
same block on different volumes.
> With memory storage, it is very likely to hit this with the following sequence of events:
> # Block is written to RAM disk
> # Lazy writer saves a copy on persistent volume
> # DN attempts to evict the original replica from RAM disk, file deletion fails as the
replica is in use.
> # Directory scanner finds a replica on both RAM disk and persistent storage.
> The directory scanner should never delete the block on persistent storage.
