When the value of a configuration key is set to its unresolved form, it causes the IllegalStateException
in Configuration.get() stating that substitution depth is too large.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-6871
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6871
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: conf
            Reporter: Arvind Prabhakar


When a configuration value is set to its unresolved expression string, it leads to recursive
substitution attempts in {{Configuration.substituteVars(String)}} method until the max substitution
check kicks in and raises an IllegalStateException indicating that the substitution depth
is too large. For example, the configuration key "{{foobar}}" with a value set to "{{$\{foobar\}}}"
will cause this behavior. 

While this is not a usual use case, it can happen in build environments where a property value
is not specified and yet being passed into the test mechanism leading to failures due to this
limitation.
