and Vinod Kone.

Bugs: MESOS-2600

Repository: mesos

Description (updated)

This involved a lot more challenges than I anticipated, I've captured the various approaches
and limitations and deal-breakers of those approaches here: [Master Endpoint Implementation

Key points:

* This is a stop-gap solution until we shift the offer creation/management logic from the
master to the allocator.
* `updateAvailable` and `updateSlave` are kept separate because
  (1) `updateAvailable` is allowed to fail whereas `updateSlave` must not.
  (2) `updateAvailable` returns a `Future` whereas `updateSlave` does not.
  (3) `updateAvailable` never leaves the allocator in an over-allocated state and must not,
whereas `updateSlave` does, and can.
* The algorithm:
    * Initially, the master pessimistically assume that what seems like "available" resources
will be gone.
      This is due to the race between the allocator scheduling an `allocate` call to itself
vs master's `allocator->updateAvailable` invocation.
      As such, we first try to satisfy the request only with the offered resources.
    * We greedily rescind one offer at a time until we've rescinded sufficiently many offers.
      IMPORTANT: We perform `recoverResources(..., Filters())` rather than `recoverResources(...,
None())` so that we can pretty much always win the race against `allocate`.
                 In the case that we lose, no disaster occurs. We simply fail to satisfy the
    * If we still don't have enough resources after resciding all offers, be optimistic and
forward the request to the allocator since there may be available resources to satisfy the
    * If the allocator returns a failure, report the error to the user with `PreconditionFailed`.
This could be updated to be `Forbidden`, or `Conflict` maybe as well. We'll pick one eventually.

This approach is clearly not ideal, since we would prefer to rescind as little offers as possible.
The challenges of implementing the ideal solution in the current state is described in the
document above.
