Add an option -count to distcp for displaying some info about the src files
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-654
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-654
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: distcp
    Affects Versions: 0.21.0
            Reporter: Ravi Gummadi
            Assignee: Ravi Gummadi
             Fix For: 0.21.0


Add an option -count to distcp for displaying metadata about src files like number of files
to be copied and total size of src files to be copied.
WIth -count, distcp doesn't do any copy. Just displays info and exits.
This is useful specifically when used with -update.
 distcp -update -count <src>* <dst> 
      would display the number of files to be updated and the total size of copy needs to
be done(by comparing the file sizes and checksums at src and dst). Based on this info, users
could allocate the number of nodes needed for the actual update job.
