> Currently, some operations that throw IOException on the NameNode are evaluated by RetryPolicy
as FAILOVER_AND_RETRY, but they should just fail fast.
> For example, when calling getXAttr("user.some_attr", file") where the file does not have
the attribute, NN throws an IOException with message "could not find attr". The current client
retry policy determines the action for that to be FAILOVER_AND_RETRY. The client then fails
over and retries until it reaches the maximum number of retries. Supposedly, the client should
be able to tell that this exception is normal and fail fast. 
> Moreover, even if the action was FAIL, the RetryInvocationHandler looks at all the retry
actions from all requests, and FAILOVER_AND_RETRY takes precedence over FAIL action.
