--------------------------------------------

Another repeat of the jenkins "noclassdef found" glitch.  Re-triggering the build. +1 pending

> The new 2-level directory layout can make directory scans expensive in terms of disk
seeks (see HDFS-8791) for details. 
> It would be good if the directoryScanner() had a configurable duty cycle that would reduce
its impact on disk performance (much like the approach in HDFS-8617). 
> Without such a throttle, disks can go 100% busy for many minutes at a time (assuming
the common case of all inodes in cache but no directory blocks cached, 64K seeks are required
for full directory listing which translates to 655 seconds)
