unclear to users which command to use to access the filesystem
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-2745
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2745
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.23.0
            Reporter: Thomas Graves
            Priority: Critical


Its unclear to users which command to use to access the filesystem. Need some background and
then we can fix accordingly. We have 3 choices:

hadoop dfs -> says its deprecated and to use hdfs.  If I run hdfs usage it doesn't list
any options like -ls in the usage, although there is an hdfs dfs command

hdfs dfs -> not in the usage of hdfs. If we recommend it when running hadoop dfs it should
atleast be in the usage.

hadoop fs -> seems like one to use it appears generic for any filesystem.

Any input on this what is the recommended way to do this?  Based on that we can fix up the
other issues.
