v3 looks good.

> StoreFileScanners on MOB cells rely on the scannerOrder to find the latest 
> cells after mob compaction. The value of scannerOrder is assigned by the 
> order of maxSeqId of StoreFile, and this maxSeqId is valued only after the 
> reader of the StoreFile is created.
> In {{Compactor.compact}}, the compacted store files are cloned and their 
> readers are not created. And in {{StoreFileScanner.getScannersForStoreFiles}} 
> the StoreFiles are sorted before the readers are created and at that time the 
> maxSeqId for each file is -1 (the default value). This will lead  to a chaos 
> in scanners in the following normal compaction. Some older cells might be 
> chosen during the normal compaction.
> We need to create readers either before the sorting in the method 
> {{StoreFileScanner.getScannersForStoreFiles}}, or create readers just after 
> the store files are cloned in {{Compactor.compact}}.
