      Description

      As part of PHOENIX-3604, when a column is dropped from an encoded immutable table, we only mark the column as dropped in metadata. This way while we disallow access to the column through phoenix queries, the data is still around if someone accesses it directly via hbase. To truly drop the data, we would need to rewrite the packed encoded cell. We can do this during major compaction where we can replace the contents of a dropped column with null.
