-Re: Clearing the .tmp directory on master startup

My plan is like this, suppose a master goes down just after creating the
regioninfo files in the tmp folder then we can try to use that info for
recreating the table regions on master restart.
But one problem here could be that before creating all the regioninfos in
the .tmp location if the master goes down we should be able to identify
this scenario also.
