Consider closing StoreFiles sometimes

                 Key: HBASE-2751
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2751
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Jean-Daniel Cryans
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.21.0

Having a lot of regions per region server could be considered harmless if most of them aren't
used, but that's not really true at the moment. We keep all files opened all the time (except
for rolled HLogs). I'm thinking of 2 solutions

 # Lazy open the store files, or at least close them down after we read the file info. Or
we could do this for every file except the most recent one.
 # Close files when they're not in use. We need some heuristic to determine when is the best
moment to declare that a file can be closed. 

Both solutions go hand in hand, and I think it would be a huge gain in order to lower the
ulimit and xceivers-related issues.
