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

[~ashish singhi] Yeah, this will work. Thanks for the pointers, I will update the patch with
the test case.

> The ReplicationLogCleaner has a bug that makes it get stuck in an infinite loop when
a regionserver crashes. This bug was introduced in the fix for HBASE-12865; which makes sure
that the loadWALsFromQueues method attempts a retry whenever the replication node's cversion
is changed in the middle of loading the replication queue for the regionservers. However,
if this scenario actually happens (a regionserver crash in the middle of the operation), it
will get stuck in an infinite loop.
> It has very serious ramifications because the old WALs are not cleaned up because of
this and in a high load environment, the file count in the oldWALs directory soon exceeds
the inode limit and the cluster goes down.
