    +     * Here is the inconsistency scenario we try to solve by updating the peer

    +     *
    +     * Let's say we have an ensemble with 3 servers z1, z2 and z3.
    +     *
    +     * 1. z1, z2 were following z3 with peerEpoch to be 0xb8, the new epoch is 
    +     *    0xb9, aka current accepted epoch on disk.
    +     * 2. z2 get restarted, which will use 0xb9 as it's peer epoch when loading
    +     *    the current accept epoch from disk.
    +     * 3. z2 received notification from z1 and z3, which is following z3 with 
    +     *    epoch 0xb8, so it started following z3 again with peer epoch 0xb8.
    +     * 4. before z2 successfully connected to z3, z3 get restarted with new 
    +     *    epoch 0xb9.
    +     * 5. z2 will retry around a few round (default 5s) before giving up, 
    +     *    meanwhile it will report z3 as leader.
    +     * 6. z1 restarted, and looking with peer epoch 0xb9.
    +     * 7. z1 voted z3, and z3 was elected as leader again with peer epoch 0xb9.
    +     * 8. z2 successfully connected to z3 before giving up, but with peer 
    +     *    epoch 0xb8.
    +     * 9. z1 get restarted, looking for leader with peer epoch 0xba, but cannot 
    +     *    join, because z2 is reporting peer epoch 0xb8, while z3 is reporting
