Rolling Restart and Load Balancer.
When we are doing rolling restarts, the load balancer is automatically
turned off.

hbase@node3:~/hbase$ ./bin/graceful_stop.sh --restart --reload --debug buldo
Disabling balancer!

However, in the documentation, we still recommand to turn it of manually
before doing the rolling restart: http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#rolling

Should the documentation be updated to reflect that it's not required
anymore to turn off the load balancer since it will be done by the script?
