> Though the org.apache.hadoop.util.Tool interface javadocs indicate  implementations should
return 0 on success, the org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.balance.Balancer.Cli implementation
returns the int values of this enum instead:
>   // Exit status
>   enum ReturnStatus {
>     SUCCESS(1),
>     IN_PROGRESS(0),
>     ALREADY_RUNNING(-1),
>     NO_MOVE_BLOCK(-2),
>     NO_MOVE_PROGRESS(-3),
>     IO_EXCEPTION(-4),
>     ILLEGAL_ARGS(-5),
>     INTERRUPTED(-6);
> This created an issue for us when we tried to run the hdfs balancer as a cron job.  
Cron sends emails whenever a executable it runs exits non-zero.   We'd either have to disable
all emails and miss real issues or fix this bug.
> I think both SUCCESS and IN_PROGRESS ReturnStatuses should lead to exit 0.
> Marking this change as incompatible because existing scripts which interpret exit 1 as
success will be broken (unless they defensively/liberally interpret both exit 1 and exit 0
as success).
