> Take a highly multithreaded client, processing a few thousand requests a second.  If
a table goes offline, one thread will get stuck in "locateRegionInMeta" which is located inside
the following sync block:
>         synchronized(userRegionLock){
>           return locateRegionInMeta(META_TABLE_NAME, tableName, row, useCache);
>         }
> So when other threads need to find a region (EVEN IF ITS CACHED!!!) it will encounter
this sync and wait. 
> This can become an issue on a busy thrift server (where I first noticed the problem),
one region offline can prevent access to all other regions!
> Potential solution: narrow this lock, or perhaps just get rid of it completely.
