> HADOOP-6881 modified WritableComparator.get such that the constructed WritableComparator
gets saved back into the static map. This is fine for stateless comparators, but some comparators
have per-instance state, and thus this becomes thread-unsafe and causes errors in the shuffle
where multiple threads are doing comparisons. An example of a Comparator with per-instance
state is WritableComparator itself.
