Chris Nauroth updated HDFS-9552:
    Attachment: HDFS-9552.001.patch

I'm attaching a patch that adds a table with the significant HDFS operations, and the access
checks performed for those operations.  I've also attached a tarball containing a full site
build with the patch in case anyone prefers to review the HTML rendering.

> The HDFS permissions guide discusses our use of a POSIX-like model with read, write and
execute permissions associated with users, groups and the catch-all other class.  However,
there is no documentation that describes exactly what permission checks are performed by user-facing
HDFS operations.  This is a frequent source of questions, so it would be good to document
