      Description

      1. If there is a "rubbish" RegionState object with "PENDING_CLOSE" in regionsInTransition(The RegionState was remained by some exception which should be removed, that's why I called it as "rubbish" object), but the region is not currently assigned anywhere, TimeoutMonitor will fall into an endless loop:

      2 In the following scenario, two concurrent unassigning call of the same region may lead to the above problem:
      the first unassign call send rpc call success, the master watched the event of "RS_ZK_REGION_CLOSED", process this event, will create a ClosedRegionHandler to remove the state of the region in master.eg.
      while ClosedRegionHandler is running in "hbase.master.executor.closeregion.threads" thread (A), another unassign call of same region run in another thread(B).
      while thread B run "if (!regions.containsKey(region))", this.regions have the region info, now cpu switch to thread A.
      The thread A will remove the region from the sets of "this.regions" and "regionsInTransition", then switch to thread B. the thread B run continue, will throw an exception with the msg of "Server null returned java.lang.NullPointerException: Passed server is null for 9a6e26d40293663a79523c58315b930f", but without removing the new-adding RegionState from "regionsInTransition",and it can not be removed for ever.

      3 The following scenario shows how the above problem 2 happened:

      (1)A table have a lot of regions, more than 70000 in my test.
      (2)Disable the table, if 'BulkDisabler.waitUntilDone' timeout, 'DisableTableHandler.process' will create another BulkDisabler object and start its thread pool. The region which was still online will call AssignmentManager.unassign again. so the same region "AssignmentManager.unassign" could be called concurrentlly more than 1.
