{code}
 forking an ls command and parsing the output.

Yikes.  This is not portable at all when usernames > 8 characters are in play. :(

> Currently, {{RawLocalFileSystem.DeprecatedRawLocalFileStatus#loadPermissionInfo}} is
implemented as forking an {{ls}} command and parsing the output.  This was observed to be
a bottleneck in YARN-3491.  This issue proposes an optional native implementation of a {{stat}}
syscall through JNI.  We would maintain the existing code as a fallback for systems where
the native code is not available.
