You can also disable splits.

inconsistency and repair it.

Not really  In 0.20.x we had a thread that did fixup on .META. by
scanning it on a period and it notice if a region was assigned to a
regionserver that was no longer registered but we don't really do that
any more.  If it turns out you have a problem in here Andreas, you
could run the .META. checker externally and if an inconsistency, its
easy enough forcing region reassign.

As Andy says, this would be S L O W but your write rate might be low
enough -- only .META. edits -- it might be work (set log roll in the
kbs rather than mbs).
