-----------------------------------------------

Checking if the patch similar to this is needed in trunk.  Once confirmed will prepare a patch
for 0.92.

> There are possibility of 2 problems
> -> When we populate regionsToMove while iterating the serverinfo in descending manner
there is a chance that the same region can be added twice.
> Because in the first loop we do a randomization of the regions.
> Where as when we get we have neededRegions!= 0 we just get the region in the index and
add it again . This may lead to have same region in the regionsToMove list.
> -> Another problem is 
> when the problem in the first point happens then there is a chance that
> the regionToMove can have the same src and destination and the same region can be picked
every 5 mins.
> {code}
> for(Map.Entry<HServerInfo, List<HRegionInfo>> server :
>         serversByLoad.descendingMap().entrySet()) {
>         BalanceInfo balanceInfo = serverBalanceInfo.get(server.getKey());
>         int idx =
>           balanceInfo == null ? 0 : balanceInfo.getNextRegionForUnload();
>         if (idx >= server.getValue().size()) break;
>         HRegionInfo region = server.getValue().get(idx);
>         if (region.isMetaRegion()) continue; // Don't move meta regions.
>         regionsToMove.add(new RegionPlan(region, server.getKey(), null));
>         if(--neededRegions == 0) {
>           // No more regions needed, done shedding
>           break;
>         }
>       }
> {code}
> If i have meta and root in the top two loaded region server(totally 3 RS), we just skip
the regions in those region server and populate the region from the least loaded RS.
> Then in the next loop we iterate from the least loaded server and populate the destination
as also the same server.
> This is leading to a condition where every 5 min balancing happens and also the server
is same for src and dest.
