> As per HADOOP-4035, the Capacity Scheduler should return no task to a TT if a job's high
mem requirements are not met. This doesn't always happen. In the Scheduler's assignTasks()
method, if a job's map task does not enough memory to run, the Scheduler looks at reduce tasks,
and vice-versa. This can result in a case where a reduce task from another job is returned
to the TT (if the high-mem job does not have a reduce task to run, for example), thus starving
the high-mem job.
