WIP patch - which changes getSplits to make parallel requests. Have been using this for a
while without issues - will try uploading a patch for review soon.

> when a job has many input paths - listStatus - or the improved listLocatedStatus - calls
(invoked from the getSplits() method) can take a long time. Most of the time is spent waiting
for the previous call to complete and then dispatching the next call. 
> This can be greatly speeded up by dispatching multiple calls at once (via executors).
If the same filesystem client is used - then the calls are much better pipelined (since calls
are serialized) and don't impose extra burden on the namenode while at the same time greatly
reducing the latency to the client. In a simple test on non-peak hours, this resulted in the
getSplits() time reducing from about 3s to about 0.5s.
