Before rushing to release 2.8, people should be trying in downstream apps today,. As well
as identifying hdfs-client related issues, I've just discovered that the MiniYARNCluster has
added lots of stack traces (YARN-4330), and I'm sure there are other regressions.

It's generally not that hard to take a downstream project and try to build with a hadoop version
of 2.8.0-SNAPSHOT; compilation and classpath problems will show up immediately; unit test
regressions can be at least identified by switching between 2.7.1 and 2.8.0-SNAPSHOT.
