FAILURE: Integrated in Hadoop-Hdfs-trunk #1807 (See 
[https://builds.apache.org/job/Hadoop-Hdfs-trunk/1807/])

test failures. Contributed by Li Lu (jianhe:

> This is what can happen.
> This is the potential race.
> DrainDispatcher is started via serviceStart() . As a last step, this starts 
> the actual dispatcher thread (eventHandlingThread.start() - and returns 
> immediately - which means the thread may or may not have started up by the 
> time start returns.
> Event sequence: 
> UserThread: calls dispatcher.getEventHandler().handle()
> This sets drained = false, and a context switch happens.
> DispatcherThread: starts running
> DispatcherThread drained = queue.isEmpty(); -> This sets drained to true, 
> since Thread1 yielded before putting anything into the queue.
> UserThread: actual.handle(event) - which puts the event in the queue for the 
> dispatcher thread to process, and returns control.
> UserThread: dispatcher.await() - Since drained is true, this returns 
> immediately - even though there is a pending event to process.
