public class LinkingIterator extends Object implements Iterator<TabletMetadata>Tablets for a table in the metadata table should form a linked list. This iterator detects when tablets do not form a linked list and backs up when this happens.
The purpose of this is to hide inconsistencies caused by splits and detect anomalies in the metadata table.
If a tablet that was returned by this iterator is subsequently deleted from the metadata table, then this iterator will throw a TabletDeletedException. This could occur when a table is merged.
