> HDFS forbids copying from a directory to its subdirectory (e.g. hdfs dfs -cp /abc /abc/xyz)
as otherwise it could cause infinite copying (/abc/xyz/xyz, /abc/xyz/xyz, /abc/xyz/xyz/xyz,...
etc)
> However, the existing path validation fails if the source path is the root, causing infinite
copying, until the disk space is filled up.
