Unblocked Checkpoints on HDR

When a checkpoint occurs on a primary it blocks the checkpoint temporaily while the checkpoint is applied to the HDR. On an RSS this can be prevented by configuring the config value RSS_NONBLOCKING_CKPT so log replay continues during checkpointing. This feature is not available on a HDR which an lead to HDR falling behind other nodes and causing a lag on HDR post checkpoints.   I would like to see the  same NONBLOCKING checkpoint on the HDR node as we are experiencing lags on HDR post checkpoints which can prove timely to clear in periods of high activity.
