> On eviction of a block from the block-cache, instead of waiting for the garbage collecter
to reuse its memory, reuse the block right away.
> This will require us to keep reference counts on the HFile blocks. Once we have the reference
counts in place we can do our own simple blocks-out-of-slab allocation for the block-cache.
> This will help us with
> * reducing gc pressure, especially in the old generation
> * making it possible to have non-java-heap memory backing the HFile blocks
