Thanks Ted. Revert the patch? Sink the RC?

> It seems I was mistaken in my assumption that changing the value of "hbase.master.wait.on.regionservers.mintostart"
to a sufficient number (from default of 1) can help prevent assignment of all regions to one
(or a small number of) region server(s).
> While this was the case in 0.90.x and 0.92.x, the behavior has changed in 0.94.0 onwards
to address HBASE-4993.
> From 0.94.0 onwards, Master will proceed immediately after the timeout has lapsed, even
if "hbase.master.wait.on.regionservers.mintostart" has not reached.
> Reading the current conditions of waitForRegionServers() clarifies it
> {code:title=ServerManager.java (trunk rev:1360470)}

> So with the current conditions, the wait will end as soon as timeout is reached even
lesser number of RS have checked-in with the Master and the master will proceed with the region
assignment among these RSes alone.
> As mentioned in -[HBASE-4993|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4993?focusedCommentId=13237196#comment-13237196]-,
and I concur, this could have disastrous effect in large cluster especially now that MSLAB
is turned on.
> To enforce the required quorum as specified by "hbase.master.wait.on.regionservers.mintostart"
irrespective of timeout, these conditions need to be modified as following
