Pete Wyckoff updated HADOOP-4028:
---------------------------------

    Summary: create close to posix layer for Linux on top of libhdfs  (was: re-factor fuse-dfs
into fuse specific things and a more posix-like layer on top of libhdfs)

> libhdfs is now very hadoop specific, which is good since there are many hadoop attributes
not present in things like stat structures. but, for things that want to access hdfs as a
posix-like FS, they would benefit from a more standard API.
> fuse-dfs now does this itself, translating from hadoop specific structures from hadoop
to posix structures like stat.  Let's put a layer on top of libhdfs that does this for us
so others benefit from it.  Once stable, we can look at adding it to libhdfs as a libhdfs_posix_like.so
or something.
