Improve listFiles API introduced by HADOOP-6870

                 Key: HADOOP-6890
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6890
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: fs
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
            Reporter: Hairong Kuang
            Assignee: Hairong Kuang
             Fix For: 0.22.0

This jira is mainly for addressing Suresh's review comments for HADOOP-6870:

   1. General comment: I have concerns about recursive listing. This could be abused by the
applications, creating a lot of requests into HDFS.
   2. Any deletion of files/directories while reursing through directories results in RuntimeException
and application has a partial result. Should we ignore if a directory was in stack and was
not found later when iterating through it?
   3. FileSystem.java
          * listFile() - method javadoc could be better organized - first write about if path
is directory and two cases recursive=true and false. Then if path is file and two cases recursive=true
or false.
          * listFile() - document throwing RuntimeException, UnsupportedOperationException
and the possible cause. IOException is no longer thrown.
   4. TestListFiles.java
          * testDirectory() - comments test empty directory and test directory with 1 file
should be moved up to relevant sections of the test.
