That makes sense. I'll post a new patch soon.

> There are a few of methods in {{DFSTestUtil}} that do not close the resource safely,
or elegantly. We can use the try-with-resource statement to address this problem.
> Specially, as {{DFSTestUtil}} is popularly used in test, we need to preserve any exceptions
thrown during the processing of the resource while still guaranteeing it's closed finally.
Take for example,the current implementation of {{DFSTestUtil#createFile()}} closes the FSDataOutputStream
in the {{finally}} block, and when closing if the internal {{DFSOutputStream#close()}} throws
any exception, which it often does, the exception thrown during the processing will be lost.
See this [test failure|https://builds.apache.org/job/PreCommit-HADOOP-Build/9320/testReport/org.apache.hadoop.hdfs/TestAsyncDFSRename/testAggressiveConcurrentAsyncRenameWithOverwrite/],
and we have to guess what was the root cause.
> Using try-with-resource, we can close the resources safely, and the exceptions thrown
both in processing and closing will be available (closing exception will be suppressed).
