getCorruptFiles() should give some hint that the list is not complete
---------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-1111
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1111
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Rodrigo Schmidt


If the list of corruptfiles returned by the namenode doesn't say anything if the number of
corrupted files is larger than the call output limit (which means the list is not complete).
There should be a way to hint incompleteness to clients.

A simple hack would be to add an extra entry to the array returned with the value null. Clients
could interpret this as a sign that there are other corrupt files in the system.

We should also do some rephrasing of the fsck output to make it more confident when the list
is not complete and less confident when the list is known to be incomplete.
