Allow for metrics to be exchanged between mapps and reduces

                 Key: MAPREDUCE-3520
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-3520
             Project: Hadoop Map/Reduce
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: mrv2
    Affects Versions: 0.24.0
            Reporter: Robert Joseph Evans

Some people on the mailing lists have requested having read access in reducers to counters
that were set by mappers.  I propose that we provide a new interface for doing this.  The
counter data in addition to being set periodically to the Application Master would be put
into the intermediate output of the mapper for each reducer and be specially marked as such.
 When the reducers fetch that data they can combine it together and provide a read only interface
to it.

This allows users to potentially optimize their code on the reducer side if they know some
special metadata before hand.
