c. dfs.client.read.shortcircuit.skip.checksum is the key to bypass checksum
check at the client side.  (from hdfs-2246 release notes).

It is red herring though because when you set
hbase.regionserver.checksum.verify, in hbase, we set the above config. to
true.  See HFileSystem.

It is news to me we read the .meta file even though we ask for no
checksumming.  Its a bug I'd say.  Do you have the fb commit that skips
this seek?  No worries if you do not.  I can find it myself.

Nice digging Varun,
