Marcel Reutegger updated JCR-3427:
----------------------------------

    Attachment: JCR-3427.patch

Proposed changes.

With those changes, the check for more records is moved outside the read lock and gives competing
threads a chance to acquire it.

> The new feature introduced with JCR-3138 may cause resource starvation when enabled.
Consider a two node cluster where one of them writes continuously. The second cluster node
will start synchronizing those changes from the journal while it holds a read lock on the
journal. This lock is never released when new records are continuously available. Write operations
on second cluster node will therefore be blocked forever because it cannot get hold of the
journal lock.
