And code expects request to not request anything - that can happen both due to logic of the
policy, and due to coprocessor overrides, or concurrent compaction requests from coprocessors.
That seems like reasonable logic for me, making it possible to call the method speculatively
when region opens/memstore flushes/compaction finishes (for schemes that may require multiple
compactions like level or stripe).
Force flag (or method) can solve the forcing compaction issue here.
Otherwise needsCompaction basically needs to be true to requestCompaction implementation (at
