> If multiple pipeline close recoveries are performed against the same block, the replica
may go corrupt.  Here is one case I have observed:
> The client tried to close a block, but the ACK timed out.  It excluded the first DN and
tried pipeline recovery (recoverClose). It too failed and another recovery was attempted with
only one DN.  This took more than usual but the client eventually got an ACK and the file
was closed successfully.  Later on the one and only replica was found to be corrupt.
> It turned out the DN was having transient slow disk I/O issue at that time. The first
recovery was stuck until the second recovery was attempted 30 seconds later.  After few seconds,
they both threads started running. The second recovery finished first and then the first recovery
with an older gen stamp finished, turning gen stamp backward.
> There is a sanity check in {{recoverCheck()}}, but since check and modify are not synchronized,
{{recoverClose()}} is not multi-thread safe.
