so we should not add stuff that cannot be solved natively with Java 6. LUCENE-5574 is the
real issue, LUCENE-5570 was just confusing to those who tried to understand the bug. But as
the bug is fixed, no need to fix the side-effect of 0 byte files.

Personally I disagree with this synopsis: the leniency makes it
difficult to catch bugs of this nature. Had fsync() simply thrown
exception instead of creating new zero byte files, Simon and I would
maybe have a lot less grey hairs

So to me doing a best effort check for java6 has real value, compared
to just doing nothing at all.

But I'm happy to release without this and at least fix the corruption
bug and make progress forwards.
