Subject Re: hbase.regionserver.impl no longer available

I was able to determine the cause of the problem. Upgrading from cdh4.x to cdh5.x, hbase region
server starts up the coprocessors in a separate JVM. Therefore, the code  extending HRegionServer
which creates a singleton has two separate copies of the class object. In cdh4.x this wasn't
the case.

I have moved the code into extended BaseRegionObserver by overriding start/stop methods. I
can see the start method being called multiple times. I have synchronized this code as well
as only allowing it to execute once.

I have also implemented the stop method in BaseRegionObserver. During shutdown of region server
I see it being called multiple times as well. I only allow the code to execute once.

I am concerned about the stop method. In normal region server operation (not shutdown condition),
can the stop method in BaseRegionObserver be executed?  If so, what circumstance can this

Can you show your code involving usage of hbase.regionserver.impl ?

Please also show the full stack trace of NPE.

A quick check across 0.98, branch-1 and master doesn't reveal difference
around this config.
