-------------------------------------

incorporating HADOOP-10375 to fix part of the contract (mkdir over a file) failing

> There are a number of edge cases that the two file system implementations handle differently.
In particular:
> * When trying to make a directory under an existing file, HDFS throws an IOException
while LocalFileSystem doesn't.
> * The FileSytem#listStatus(Path) method returns null for a non-existent file on HDFS,
while LocalFileSytem returns an empty FileStatus array.
> * When trying to rename a non-existent path, LocalFileSystem throws an IOException, while
HDFS returns false.
> * When renaming a file or directory to a non-existent directory (e.g. /a/b to /c/d, where
/c doesn't exist) LocalFileSystem succeeds (returns true) while HDFS fails (false).
> * When renaming a file (or directory) as an existing file (or directory) LocalFileSystem
succeeds (returns true) while HDFS fails (false).
> We should document the expected behaviour for these cases in FileSystem's javadoc, and
make sure all implementations conform to it.
