Hudson commented on HADOOP-6545:

Integrated in Hadoop-Common-trunk-Commit #179 (See [http://hudson.zones.apache.org/hudson/job/Hadoop-Common-trunk-Commit/179/])
    . Changes the Key for the FileSystem cache to be UGI. Contributed by Devaraj Das.

> The FileSystem class caches the filesystem objects that it creates for users. For some
cases, e.g., if the filesystem object is actually a DistributedFileSystem, it also has an
associated RPC client and hence an UGI for the respective user. This could lead to issues
to do with using the right credentials when connecting with the namenode. The credentials
in the UGI is never updated (even if the user in question now has new credentials) and in
case the cached UGI's credentials have expired, this would lead to authentication error whenever
there is a re-authentication (in the process of re-establishing connection to the namenode).
