Re: reason to do major compaction after split
This is seems to going in a super messy direction.
With HBASE-7806 the ideas was to cleanup all this crazy stuff (HFileLink,
References, ...)

unfortunately the initial decision of tight together the fs layout
and the tables/regions/families is bringing to all this workaround to have
something cool.

If you put the files in one place, and the association in another  you can
avoid all this complexity.

/hbase/data/[file1, file 2, file 3, file N]

table 1/region 1: [file 2]
table 1/region 2: [file 1 (from 0 to 50)]
table 1/region 3: [file 1 (from 50 to 100)]
table 2/region 1: [file 1, file 2]
