Re: read short circuit
Making it the default seems reasonable.

For <= 0.94, the security profile has a separate hbase-site.xml file
under test resources where there it could be defaulted as off.  Reason
is the local block sharing requires some shared group membership
between HBase and HDFS service accounts that might be objectionable in
a secure setting. So we should have test coverage with it off.
