Yes Eli,  Agree with you.

 I think we must take a look immediately now.

I just debugged the failure related to this class cast exception.

Following is the initial analysis:

Previous behaviour of getListing in ClientNamenodeProtocolTranslatorR23 is
  It will pass needLocation flag as true and server side will be packed empty LocatedBlocks
with HdfsLocatedFileStatus object if getBlocations are null and needLocation flag is true.
So, cleint will reconstruct the HdfsLocatedFileStatus directly  if HdfsfileStatus is instanceOf

But with new implementation of protocolBuffers,  It is just ignoring the LocatedBlocks are
server side if the getBlocklocations are null. At client side, to reconstruct the HDFSFileStatus
object, it is depending on locations field. Since there is no locations field here, it is
considering HDFSFileStatus as just HDFSFileStatus.

Here test assumes that HDFSFileStatus  obj will be type of HdfsLocatedFileStatus  and trying
cast. This is failing here.

I think Suresh and Sanjay can give more hint on this.

Subject: test failures on trunk

Hey gang,

Looks like a number of the trunk tests
(https://builds.apache.org/job/Hadoop-Hdfs-trunk) started failing on
the 10th, due to the following. Ring a bell?  Maybe due to all the
recent protocol changes?

Error Message
