snapshotting doesn't handle runtime exceptions (like out of memory) well

                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-714
             Project: Zookeeper
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: server
    Affects Versions: 3.2.2
            Reporter: Patrick Hunt
             Fix For: 3.3.1

If an out of memory occurs during snapshotting we recover from the error, 
however we should be more explict about the problem. 

Currently we log a warning, really we should log a FATAL and exit. This would 
force the server to restart (supervisor) and make it very clear to the user 
there is a problem. In some cases users don't notice the OOM exception (we have 
trouble noticing it sometimes ourselves) as it doesn't stand out on the logs. 
Exiting would be more explicit. However since we'd like to remove sysexits due 
to container issues it's not clear what we should do here in addition to making 
this FATAL.
