> Currently {{INodeFile}} stores the lists of blocks as references of {{BlockInfo}} instead
of the block ids. This creates implicit dependency between the namespace and the block manager.
> The dependency blocks several recent efforts, such as separating the block manager out
as a standalone service, moving block information off heap, and optimizing the memory usage
of block manager.
> This jira proposes to decouple the dependency by storing block ids instead of object
reference in {{INodeFile}} objects.
