The failed (long) tests in precommit are all passing on my machine.

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha
>            Reporter: Daryn Sharp
>            Assignee: Kihwal Lee
>            Priority: Major

> Files will remain open indefinitely if block recovery fails which creates a 
> high risk of data loss.  The replication monitor will not replicate these 
> blocks.
> The NN provides the primary node a list of candidate nodes for recovery which 
> involves a 2-stage process. The primary node removes any candidates that 
> cannot init replica recovery (essentially alive and knows about the block) to 
> create a sync list.  Stage 2 issues updates to the sync list – _but fails if 
> any node fails_ unlike the first stage.  The NN should be informed of nodes 
> that did succeed.
> Manual recovery will also fail until the problematic node is temporarily 
> stopped so a connection refused will induce the bad node to be pruned from 
> the candidates.  Recovery succeeds, the lease is released, under replication 
> is fixed, and block is invalidated from the bad node.
