FsShell ls: Show symlinks properties
------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-1788
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1788
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: tools
            Reporter: Jonathan Eagles
            Priority: Minor


ls FsShell command implementation has been consistent with the linux implementations of ls
-l. With the addition of symlinks, I would expect the ability to show file type 'd' for directory,
'-' for file, and 'l' for symlink. In addition, following the linkname entry for symlinks,
I would expect the ability to show "-> <link target>". In linux, the default is to
the the properties of the link and not of the link target. In linux, '-L' option allows for
the dereferencing of symlinks to show link target properties, but it is not the default.
