Handle potential data loss due to concurrent processing of processFaileOver and ServerShutdownHandler

                 Key: HBASE-5270
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5270
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Zhihong Yu
             Fix For: 0.94.0, 0.92.1

This JIRA continues the effort from HBASE-5179. Starting with Stack's comments about patches
for 0.92 and TRUNK:

Reviewing 0.92v17

isDeadServerInProgress is a new public method in ServerManager but it does not seem to be
used anywhere.

Does isDeadRootServerInProgress need to be public? Ditto for meta version.

This method param names are not right 'definitiveRootServer'; what is meant by definitive?
Do they need this qualifier?

Is there anything in place to stop us expiring a server twice if its carrying root and meta?

What is difference between asking assignment manager isCarryingRoot and this variable that
is passed in? Should be doc'd at least. Ditto for meta.

I think I've asked for this a few times - onlineServers needs to be explained... either in
javadoc or in comment. This is the param passed into joinCluster. How does it arise? I think
I know but am unsure. God love the poor noob that comes awandering this code trying to make
sense of it all.

It looks like we get the list by trawling zk for regionserver znodes that have not checked
in. Don't we do this operation earlier in master setup? Are we doing it again here?

Though distributed split log is configured, we will do in master single process splitting
under some conditions with this patch. Its not explained in code why we would do this. Why
do we think master log splitting 'high priority' when it could very well be slower. Should
we only go this route if distributed splitting is not going on. Do we know if concurrent distributed
log splitting and master splitting works?

Why would we have dead servers in progress here in master startup? Because a servershutdownhandler

This patch is different to the patch for 0.90. Should go into trunk first with tests, then
0.92. Should it be in this issue? This issue is really hard to follow now. Maybe this issue
is for 0.90.x and new issue for more work on this trunk patch?

This patch needs to have the v18 differences applied.
