Add a memcmp-compatible interface for key types
-----------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-4151
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4151
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Chris Douglas
            Assignee: Chris Douglas
             Fix For: 0.19.0
         Attachments: 4151-0.patch

Sometimes it's beneficial to treat types (like BytesWritable and Text) as byte arrays, agnostic
to their type. Adding an interface to tag key types as amenable to this treatment can permit
optimizations and reuse for that subset of types in tools and libraries.
