> This came out of discussion in HADOOP-12718. The {{FileSystem#listStatus}} contract does
not indicate {{null}} is a valid return and some callers do not test {{null}} before use:
> AbstractContractGetFileStatusTest#testListStatusEmptyDirectory:
> {code}
>     assertEquals("ls on an empty directory not of length 0", 0,
>         fs.listStatus(subfolder).length);
> {code}
> ChecksumFileSystem#copyToLocalFile:
> {code}
>       FileStatus[] srcs = listStatus(src);
>       for (FileStatus srcFile : srcs) {
> {code}
> SimpleCopyLIsting#getFileStatus:
> {code}
>       FileStatus[] fileStatuses = fileSystem.listStatus(path);
>       if (excludeList != null && excludeList.size() > 0) {
>         ArrayList<FileStatus> fileStatusList = new ArrayList<>();
>         for(FileStatus status : fileStatuses) {
> {code}
> IMHO, there is no good reason for {{listStatus}} to return {{null}}. It should throw
IOExceptions upon errors or return empty list.
> To enforce the contract that null is an invalid return, update javadoc and leverage @Nullable/@NotNull/@Nonnull
annotations.
> So far, I am only aware of the following functions that can return null:
> * RawLocalFileSystem#listStatus
