> The SecureIOUtils.openForRead function currently uses a racy stat/open combo if security
is disabled and the native libraries are not available. This ends up shelling out to "ls -ld"
which is very very slow. We've seen this cause significant performance regressions on clusters
that match this profile.
> Since the racy permissions check doesn't buy us any security anyway, we should just fall
back to a normal "open" without any stat() at all, if we can't use the native support to do
it efficiently.
