Subject Re: dfs.datanode.handler.count

Things are looking really good since the change. Load that
would cause failure after 4 hours can now be sustained for

Setting the DFSClient timeout to 0 avoids datanodes being
marked as bad, but, if the handlers fall behind, there are
big negative consequences. For example, there's no sane
reason why the block containing the data file for META
should go missing... but when/if it does, that's it, game
over. I opened HBASE-1108 about that. 

Also, in particular, master state races are exposed, but
HBASE-1104 should address them. At least with DFS able to
respond in a timely manner on my clusters now, the window
for those races has apparently closed.
