> In S3AFileSystem, as an optimization, we delete unnecessary fake directory objects if
that directory contains at least one (nested) file. That is done in closing stream of newly
created file. However, if the directory becomes non-empty after we just create an empty subdirectory,
we do not delete its fake directory object though that fake directory object becomes "unnecessary".
> So in {{S3AFileSystem::mkdirs()}}, we have a pending TODO:
> {quote}
>   // TODO: If we have created an empty file at /foo/bar and we then call
>   // mkdirs for /foo/bar/baz/roo what happens to the empty file /foo/bar/?
>   private boolean innerMkdirs(Path p, FsPermission permission)
> {quote}
> This JIRA is to fix the TODO: provide consistent behavior for a fake directory object
between its nested subdirectory and nested file by deleting it.
> See related discussion in [HADOOP-14236]. Thanks [~stevel@apache.org] for discussion.
