    Description

      Recurring failures and false positives undermine CI by encouraging developers to ignore unit test failures. Let's clean these up!

      Some are intermittent due to timing-sensitive conditions. The unit tests for background thread activities (such as block replication and corrupt replica detection) often use "wait while" or "wait until" loops to detect results. The quality and robustness of these loops vary widely, and common usages should be moved to DFSTestUtil.
