Review request for mesos, Bernd Mathiske, Greg Mann, Artem Harutyunyan, Jan Schlicht, and
Till Toenshoff.


Fixed typo in comment.  Tested on a few more platforms.

Summary (updated)

Fix flaky MemoryPressureMesosTests

Bugs: MESOS-3586

Repository: mesos


The existing tests will check that "low" pressure events occur at least as often as "medium"
pressure events (this is the documented behavior).  However, the order of events and the order
in which we process said events is not guaranteed.  When we collect the pressure events via
a counter, there may be some events that are in-flight, and thereby not accounted for in the

This patch modifies MemoryPressureMesosTests to wait for memory pressure events to stop before
checking the counts for correctness.
The tests now stop the memory-pressure-triggering task and then wait for all events to be
processed before checking the counters.

Testing (updated)

On Debian 8, Ubuntu 14, Centos 7 (Thanks Jan!):
`make check`
`sudo bin/ --gtest_filter="*MemoryPressureMesosTest*" --gtest_repeat=-1 --gtest_break_on_failure`

^ Ran the above for a couple minutes or ~100 times.  It was previously failing ~1/5 times.

Note on Centos 6 (Thanks Greg!):

There is some other flakiness (in Agent recovery).  This will be tracked in
