ReduceTask should handle rpc timeout better when creating record writer
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: ABDERA-141
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ABDERA-141
             Project: Abdera
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Runping Qi




After shuffling and sorting, the reduce task is ready for the final phase --- reduce.
The first thing is to create a record writer.
That call may fail due to rpc timeout.

java.net.SocketTimeoutException: timed out waiting for rpc response

Then the whole reduce task failed, and all the work of shuflling and sorting is gone!

The reduce task should handle this case better. It is worthwile to try a few times before
it gives up.
The stake is too high to give up at the first try.
