> Post HDFS-6800, we can encounter the following scenario:
> # We start with DN software version -55 and initiate a rolling upgrade to version -56
> # We delete some blocks, and they are moved to trash
> # We roll back to DN software version -55 using the -rollback flag – since we are running
the old code (prior to this patch), we will restore the previous directory but will not delete
the trash
> # We append to some of the blocks that were deleted in step 2
> # We then restart a DN that contains blocks that were appended to – since the trash
still exists, it will be restored at this point, the appended-to blocks will be overwritten,
and we will lose the appended data
> So I think we need to avoid writing anything to the trash directory if we have a previous
> Thanks to [~james.thomas] for reporting this.
