    Description

      When we are deleting the history store record in reconciliation, we search the history store with WT_CURSTD_HS_READ_ALL flag. This will return the history store record that are actually obsolete. If we see such record, we should continue until we see an non-obsolete record. If all the updates are obsolete, we should do nothing and return successfully.

          hs_cursor->set_key(hs_cursor, 3, btree_id, key, ts);
          F_SET(hs_cursor, WT_CURSTD_HS_READ_ALL);
          WT_ERR_NOTFOUND_OK(__wt_curhs_search_near_after(session, hs_cursor), true);
          /* Empty history store is fine. */
          if (ret == WT_NOTFOUND) {
              ret = 0;
              goto done;
          } else {
              WT_ERR(hs_cursor->get_key(hs_cursor, &hs_btree_id, &hs_key, &hs_ts, &hs_counter));
              ++hs_counter;
          }
