Patch looks good. Just make sure it passes the QA test. Hadoop QA doesn't seem to have picked
up the latest version.

> The minimum unit of work for a distcp task is a file. We have files that are greater
than 1 TB with a block size of  1 GB. If we use distcp to copy these files, the tasks either
take a long long long time or finally fails. A better way for distcp would be to copy all
the source blocks in parallel, and then stich the blocks back to files at the destination
via the HDFS Concat API (HDFS-222)
