Running into deadlock when do CommitLog initialization

    Description

      Recently, I found a cassandra(3.11.4) node stuck in STARTING status for a long time.
      I used jstack to saw what happened. The main thread stuck in AbstractCommitLogSegmentManager.awaitAvailableSegment

      The strange thing is COMMIT-LOG-ALLOCATOR thread state was runnable but it was not actually running. 

      And then I used pstack to troubleshoot. I found COMMIT-LOG-ALLOCATOR block on java class initialization.

      This is a deadlock obviously. CommitLog waits for a CommitLogSegment when initializing. In this moment, the CommitLog class is not initialized and the main thread holds the class lock. After that, COMMIT-LOG-ALLOCATOR creates a CommitLogSegment with exception and call CommitLog.handleCommitError(static method). COMMIT-LOG-ALLOCATOR will block on this line because CommitLog class is still initializing.
