      In such steps. A file would not be recoveried forever.
      1. create a file
      2. write data and flush
      3. terminate the client after the NameNode allocate block for it and before client writes data to DataNode
      4. then shutdown the NN
      5. start the NN

      then, the file could not be recovered since the new-started NN has no DN(not write data to any DNs) to report the replica of the block. so any open operation to the file would fail.
      It is a very serious problem, since that if it happen to HBase's HLog file, its region server would not be started, causing that region server would try to open the HLog file with no-endding.

      the log of recovering in NN is:
