Catalog Janitor logic bug causes region leackage

                 Key: HBASE-4799
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4799
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: master
    Affects Versions: 0.90.4
            Reporter: Max Lapan
            Priority: Critical

When region split takes a significant amount of time, CatalogJanitor can cleanup one of SPLIT
records, but left another in META. When another split finish, janitor cleans left SPLIT record,
but parent regions haven't removed from FS and META not cleared.

The race condition is follows:
1. region split started
2. one of regions splitted, i.e. A (have no reference storefiles) but other (B) doesn't
3. janitor started and in routine checkDaughter removes SPLITA from meta, but see that SPLITB
has references and does nothing.
4. region B completes split
5. janitor wakes up, removes SPLITB, but see that there is no records for A and does nothing

Result - parent region hangs forever.
