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

There were two rejected hunks for HStore.java

> A store unit holds a column family in a region, where the memstore is its in-memory component.
The memstore absorbs all updates to the store; from time to time these updates are flushed
to a file on disk, where they are compacted. Unlike disk components, the memstore is not compacted
until it is written to the filesystem and optionally to block-cache. This may result in underutilization
of the memory due to duplicate entries per row, for example, when hot data is continuously
updated. 
> Generally, the faster the data is accumulated in memory, more flushes are triggered,
the data sinks to disk more frequently, slowing down retrieval of data, even if very recent.
> In high-churn workloads, compacting the memstore can help maintain the data in memory,
and thereby speed up data retrieval. 
> We suggest a new compacted memstore with the following principles:
> 1.	The data is kept in memory for as long as possible
> 2.	Memstore data is either compacted or in process of being compacted 
> 3.	Allow a panic mode, which may interrupt an in-progress compaction and force a flush
of part of the memstore.
> We suggest applying this optimization only to in-memory column families.
> A design document is attached.
> This feature was previously discussed in HBASE-5311.
