> Today, if there’s a digest mismatch in a foreground read repair, the insert 
> to update out of date replicas is blocking. This means, if it fails, the read 
> fails with a timeout. If a node is dropping writes (maybe it is overloaded or 
> the mutation stage is backed up for some other reason), all reads to a 
> replica set could fail. Further, replicas dropping writes get more out of 
> sync so will require more read repair.
> The comment on the code for why the writes are blocking is:
> {code}
> // wait for the repair writes to be acknowledged, to minimize impact on any 
> replica that's
> // behind on writes in case the out-of-sync row is read multiple times in 
> quick succession
> {code}
> but the bad side effect is that reads timeout. Either the writes should not 
> be blocking or we should return success for the read even if the write times 
> out.
