despite the test failures? Hudson is invaluable to developers who then don't have to run the
tests and test-patch themselves.  We didn't turn Hudson off when it was working previously
and there were known failures.  I think one of the reasons we have more failing tests now
is the higher cost of doing Hudson's work (not a great excuse I know).  This is particularly
true now because several of the failing tests involve tests timing out, making the whole testing
regime even longer.

Every single patch would get a -1 and need investigation.  Currently, that would be about
83 investigations between MR and HDFS issues that are in patch available state.  Shouldn't
we focus on getting these tests fixed or removed/?  Also, I need to get MAPREDUCE-2172 fixed
(applies to HDFS as well) before I turn this on.
