Stack overflow when calling HTable.checkAndPut() when deleting a lot of values

                 Key: HBASE-1951
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1951
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: regionserver
    Affects Versions: 0.20.1
         Environment: Running HBase 0.20.1 on Cloudera distribution of Hadoop 0.20.1+152 on
an EC2 test cluster with one master, one embedded zookeeper, and only one region server
            Reporter: Age Mooij

We get a stackoverflow when calling HTable.checkAndPut() from a map-reduce job though the
client API after doing a large number of deletes.

Our mapred job is a periodic job (which extends TableMapper) that merges the versions for
a value in a column into a new value/version and then deletes the older versions. This is
because we use versions to store data so we can do append-only insertion. Our rows can have
large/huge (from 1 till > 1M) numbers of columns (aka key-values).

The problem seems to be that the org.apache.hadoop.hbase.regionserver.GetDeleteTracker.isDeleted()
method is implemented with recursion but since Java has no tail recursion optimization, this
fails for cases where the number of deletes that are being tracked is bigger than the stack
size. I'm not sure why recursion is used here but it is not safe without tail-call optimization
and it should be optimized into a simple loop.

I'll attach the stacktrace.
