Remove ability to specify a custom nameserver for an interface in DNS.java

                 Key: HADOOP-8156
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8156

          Components: conf

            Assignee: Eli Collins

This feature is not in MR2, and I dont't think it makes sense for HDFS since HDFS stopped
advertising DNs by hostname a long time ago (HADOOP-985). Also per HADOOP-8134 and HBASE-4109,
I don't think this feature works, as it returns the PTR record verbatim instead of the hostname
(eg PTR record may have a trailing ".", ".lan" etc that may not resolve).

How about we remove this feature from trunk and 23?   We can deprecate in 1.0, though I doubt
anyone is using it.  This is an incompatible change. DNS is annotated LimitedPrivate and Unstable
but HBase uses it so will file need to file a jira there (they use this via HBASE-1279 and
