> In working on security, we've found a need for a new notification point: completion of
startup for an active master instance.  The idea is that this would be called at the end of
{{HMaster.finishInitialization()}}, after ROOT and META have been assigned as a signal that
the master is essentially "up" and available.
> So I propose that we add the following to {{MasterObserver}}:
> {code}
> /**
>  * Called immediately after an active master instance has completed
>  * initialization.  Will not be called on standby master instances unless
>  * they take over the active role.
>  */
> void postStartMaster(final ObserverContext<MasterCoprocessorEnvironment> ctx)
>     throws IOException;
> {code}
> As an example, in the case of the security implementation, we want to use this hook to
check whether the {{\_acl\_}} table we use to store permission assignments internally have
been created and initialized.
