TaskRunner can get NPE in getting ugi from TaskTracker

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-1707
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1707
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: tasktracker
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
            Reporter: Amareshwari Sriramadasu
             Fix For: 0.22.0

The following code in TaskRunner can get NPE in the scenario described below.
      UserGroupInformation ugi = 

The scenario:
Tracker got a LaunchTaskAction; Task is localized and TaskRunner is started.
Then Tracker got a KillJobAction; This would issue a kill for the task. But, kill will be
a no-op because the task did not actually start; The job is removed from runningJobs. 
Then if TaskRunner calls tracker.getRunningJob(t.getJobID()), it will be null.

Instead of TaskRunner doing a back call to tasktracker to get the ugi, tracker.getRunningJob(t.getJobID()).getUGI(),
ugi should be passed a parameter in the constructor of TaskRunner.
