> TrackerDistributedCacheManager issues a number of redundant getFileStatus calls when
determining the timestamps and visibilities of files in the distributed cache.  300 distributed
cache files deep in the directory structure can hammer HDFS with a couple thousand requests.
> A couple optimizations can reduce this load:
> 1. determineTimestamps and determineCacheVisibilities both call getFileStatus on every
file.  We could cache the results of the former and use them for the latter.
> 2. determineCacheVisibilities needs to check that all ancestor directories of each file
have execute permissions for everyone.  This currently entails a getFileStatus on each ancestor
directory for each file.  The results of these getFileStatus calls could be cached as well.
