There is no easy way to do this in 0.7. If you are using a VIP to produce
data to Kafka, you can remove that broker host from the VIP. It will still
be available for consumer reads until it is shut down but won't accept new
data from the producer. In 0.8, since there are many replicas, you will not
need to drain a broker. You can just take it offline.
