The findbugs and test failures should not be related with this patch.

> Running the following steps will probably lose MOB data when working with snapshots.
> 1. Create a mob-enabled table by running create 't1', {NAME => 'f1', IS_MOB =>
true, MOB_THRESHOLD => 0}.
> 2. Put millions of data.
> 3. Run {{snapshot 't1','t1_snapshot'}} to take a snapshot for this table t1.
> 4. Run {{clone_snapshot 't1_snapshot','t1_cloned'}} to clone this snapshot.
> 5. Run {{delete_snapshot 't1_snapshot'}} to delete this snapshot.
> 6. Run {{disable 't1'}} and {{delete 't1'}} to delete the table.
> 7. Now go to the archive directory of t1, the number of .link directories is different
from the number of hfiles which means some data will be lost after the hfile cleaner runs.
> This is because, when taking a snapshot on a enabled mob table, each region flushes itself
and takes a snapshot, and the mob snapshot is taken only if the current region is first region
of the table. At that time, the flushing of some regions might not be finished, and some mob
files are not flushed to disk yet. Eventually some mob files are not recorded in the snapshot
> To solve this, we need to take the mob snapshot at last after the snapshots on all the
online and offline regions are finished in {{EnabledTableSnapshotHandler}}.
