Janos Gub commented on HBASE-16621:
-----------------------------------

No as https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16529 says also. I changed 
the contract of this filter in my next patch only to filter paths (implements 
PathFilter instead of extending AbstractFileStatusFilter). In this way it is 
guaranteed that it will return everything that looks like an HFileLink (file or 
directory). Also I added a test case, where we create a directory, which name 
looks like an HFileLink and also contains some files. Now it is also sidelined 
(I am not sure if it is a valid test case).

> HBCK should have -fixHFileLinks

> Similar to {{-fixReferenceFiles}}, HBCK should be able to sideline dangling 
> HFile Links as well. 
> We have seen a couple of cases, where due to HDFS-level fsck run which 
> deleted files with missing blocks, the cluster is left with dangling HFIle 
> Links, and regions cannot be opened because of these. Only a manual and 
> error-prone finding and clearing of HFileLinks can save the tables regions.
