Duo Zhang commented on HBASE-20182:
-----------------------------------

Oh, it is not easy to add a filter... The split flag is encoded in the binary 
representation of RegionInfo...

> Can not locate region after split and merge

> When implementing serial replication feature in HBASE-20046, I found that 
> when splitting a region, we will not remove the parent region, instead we 
> will mark it offline.
> And when locating a region, we will only scan one row so if we locate to the 
> offlined region then we are dead.
> This will not happen for splitting, since one of the new daughter regions 
> have the same start row with the parent region, and the timestamp is greater 
> so when doing reverse scan we will always hit the daughter first.
> But if we also consider merge then bad things happen. Consider we have two 
> regions A and B, we split B to C and D, and then merge A and C to E, then 
> ideally the regions should be E and D, but actually the regions in meta will 
> be E, B and D, and they all have different start rows. If you use a row 
> within the range of old region C, then we will always locate to B and throw 
> exception.
