DistributedFileSystem.mkdirs(dir, dirPermission) doesn't set the permissions of created dir
to dirPermission
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-1322
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1322
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Ravi Gummadi


DistributedFileSystem.mkdirs(dir, dirPermission) calls DFSClient.mkdirs(dir, dirPermission)
to create directory and then set permissions to (dirPermission & umask). Is this the intended
behaviour ? I expect it to set permissions of dir to dirPermission instead of doing an AND
with umask ---- similar to what 'chmod -m mode' does.

The javadoc of DFSClient.mkdirs() says that the permissions of created dir will be set to
dirPermission, which is not done currently. This needs to be modified based on the actual
behaviour.

This is not an issue in RawLocalFileSystem.
