      Description

      For tests purposes, DC2 was shut down for 1 day. The hints table was filled with millions of rows. Now, when HintedHandOffManager tries to doDeliverHintsToEndpoint it queries the store with QueryFilter.getSliceFilter which counts deleted (TTLed) cells and throws org.apache.cassandra.db.filter.TombstoneOverwhelmingException.
      Throwing this exception stops the manager from running compaction as it is run only after successful handoff. This leaves the HH practically disabled till administrator runs truncateAllHints.
      Wouldn't it be nicer if on org.apache.cassandra.db.filter.TombstoneOverwhelmingException run compaction? That would remove TTLed hints leaving whole HH mechanism in a healthy state.

      The stacktrace is:
