Hook InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName() to support cluster simulatation.

         Key: HADOOP-197
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-197
     Project: Hadoop
        Type: Improvement

  Components: dfs, mapred  
 Environment: all
    Reporter: alan wootton
    Priority: Minor
 Attachments: InetAddressWrapper.patch

I have been running a simulation for weeks now (and also a 30 machine crawl). To make it work
I need to sometimes 
let DataNodes, and TaskTrackers think they have a different machine-name than the one in InetAddress.getLocalHost()

The patch is:

1) replace InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName() with xxxx
	1.a)xxxx could be "conf.get("inetaddress.localhost.name",InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName())"
	1.b)or, xxxx could be a static call, I chose the latter: "InetAddressWrapper.getLocalHostName(conf)"
2) InetAddressWrapper.getLocalHostName(conf) checks the config for a hostname, and then calls

There's 3 places where it happens:

I did not patch the two tests that call InetAddress because they are not really using hostname.
